PLYMOUTH, Mass. — A 3-year-old boy drowning in a remote pond at Myles Standish State Forest in Plymouth was plucked from the water by family and resuscitated by off-duty first-responders yesterday.
"I was just sitting in the sun, watching the water, and all of a sudden I saw this little girl taking a boy out of the water and his body was limp and everyone started screaming," said Mallory Reis, an off-duty Cranston police officer who was camping with her family.
