WESTPORT — The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office has identified the three victims of a hunting accident in the Westport River on Tuesday morning.
The two victims who died are Steven James, 53, of Marshfield, and Robert Becher, 55, of Cromwell, Conn. The surviving victim, Gregg Angell, 51, of Westport, was hospitalized at Rhode Island Hospital Tuesday afternoon, being treated for hypothermia.
After a resident reported a capsized boat in the river, the harbormaster found the boat tangled in a mooring.
Police went to the home of the vehicle’s registered owner and confirmed its owner and two other men went duck hunting on the river early Tuesday morning.
James and Becher were found dead a short time later at the town’s Cherry and Webb Beach. Angell was rescued by a U.S. Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopter crew.
