First responders on Monday will resume what has been deemed a recovery effort -- rather than a rescue -- after a man fell through an icy reservoir in Wareham, Massachusetts a day earlier.
Divers are expected to return Monday morning after spending hours Sunday night searching for the missing man's body in the area of 786 County Road, where there is a reservoir and cranberry bog.
Officials said it was deemed a recovery operation just before 11 p.m. Sunday and called it off for the night around 12:30 a.m. Monday. The town's deputy fire chief said they would return at 8:30 a.m. to continue the search.
"The water is murky. Stumps, trees and other objects are in there, so there's a lot of hazards they're trying to get around," Wareham Assistant Fire Chief Patrick Haskell said. "Plus there's ice -- trying to get ice moved around under the ice using divers, sonar."
