He was clinging to the boat for a while, then got separated from the 8-foot, unmotorized craft, and at one point even went under water, witnesses said.

Someone who lives on the edge of the pond called 911.

Firefighters were able to quickly launch the department's rescue boat.

They reached the man and hauled him to safety.

He was taken to Merrimack Valley Hospital for treatment.
