ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Natural Resources police say a man has died after being knocked off a personal watercraft in the Chesapeake Bay.
It happened Thursday about 3:40 p.m. south of the fishing pier at North Beach in Calvert County. Police say 42-year-old William Thomas Cole of North Beach was riding the 10-foot personal watercraft and jumping waves when he was knocked off his vessel.
Officers say Cole, who was wearing a lifejacket, called for help but was covered by breaking waves and then was seen unconscious on the water. Volunteer firefighters picked Cole up and took him to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The accident is under investigation.
