BOSTON, MA (WBZ-AM)--The body of a man who went over board during a harbor cruise off "Peddocks" Island was recovered this morning by the Coast Guard. Officials say the 21 year old unidentified victim was aboard the "Provincetown II" ferry attending a tropical luau, when he disappeared over the side around 8:30pm Saturday night. Witnesses say a security guard on the boat tried to reach the victim after he fell into the harbor but was unable to save him.
After combined rescue crews searched over 14 nautical miles, Massachusetts State Police divers found his body shortly before 1am Sunday about 100 yards from where he had gone in the water. The accident is being investigated by the Massachusetts State Police.
