2 hunters die after boat capsizes off Massachusetts

Authorities say two of the three duck hunters who fell into the frigid waters of Westport Harbor after their vessel capsized have died.

A spokesman for the Bristol district attorney's office says the surviving man has been transported to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, R.I. His condition was not disclosed.

Their boat was found overturned at about 9 a.m. Tuesday.

A Coast Guard spokeswoman says two of the men were recovered by the Westport harbormaster and the third was rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter crew.

The district attorney's spokesman says the deaths are not considered suspicious.

No other information, including the names of the victims, was immediately available.

The deaths remain under investigation.
