May Be Missing Marshfield Boater
Police recovered a body off the Brant Rock/Ocean Bluff section of Marshfield yesterday (shown as red dot above), and it may be that of Zach Woods.
Police have been scouring the area since a boating accident on July 16th pitched two men into the water.
The boat's driver, Justin McDonald, pleaded Not Guilty to charges of operating a boat while intoxicated. Reports say that Justin admitted to drinking 10 beers before he crashed his boat into a jetty.
The crash threw McDonald and Woods into the water. McDonald was rescued by a kayaker, but Woods was never found. An intense police search of the area yielded nothing as the effort went from Rescue to Recovery.
A recreational boater saw a body in the water off Brant Rock yesterday, and divers recovered him last night. The Massachusetts State Police Dive Team, Marine Section, Crime Scene Services Section and the Plymouth County State Police Detective Unit were all in on the recovery efforts.
Our best wishes go out to the Woods family, and we urge all boaters to lay off the firewater.
