Six drownings in six weeks has N.H. Fish and Game officials concerned


CONCORD - Drowning deaths in the state have already surpassed previous years’ water-related deaths and officials at the N.H. Fish and Game Department are worried.

According to the Union Leader, there have been six drownings in the past six weeks here in NH, the state average being only about 9 to 10 each year.

Most recently, a missing boater was recovered from Lake Winnipesaukee and the bodies of a father and son were found in the Merrimack River on Thursday.

Officials say an abundance of rain making currents stronger could be partly to blame for some drownings.
