QUINCY, Mass (AP) — A 19-year-old man drowned Sunday off Mound Street Beach in Quincy, police said.

Quincy Police say they were called to the beach at around 2:15 p.m. for a report of a person who had entered the water and didn’t resurface.

Multiple agencies responded as well as two civilian divers to help pull the teen from the water.

Police told WCVB-TV the victim, who hasn’t been named, was taken to South Shore Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

It’s the latest in a spate of drownings in the state as temperatures soar across the region.

Earlier Sunday, Dedham police said a 17-year-old teen was in critical condition at the hospital after being pulled from a pool at around 12:30 a.m. during a graduation party at a residence.
