Update – Body of Olympian’s Father Recovered From Lake

The Maine Warden Service has recovered the body of a man who fell into the water while rowing yesterday and never resurfaced.

Warden Corporal John MacDonald said in a press release that it was around 8:00 Tuesday morning when James B. Wescott, age 71, was rowing with a friend on Megunticook Lake in Camden. He reportedly suffered a medical event, entered the water and did not resurface.

Wescott is the father of Olympic snowboarder Seth Wescott. He and a friend were in separate skulling boats, rowing on Megunticook Lake when he reportedly clutched his chest and fell into the water. His body was found at around 8:30 Tuesday evening in 60 feet of water.

Maine game wardens, Camden Fire and Police Departments, and Megunticook Lake Patrol assisted in that search.
