MARION, Massachusetts — Authorities have recovered the body of a man who fell off his boat in Massachusetts waters.

A passing boater recovered the man at about 2:30 p.m. His name was not released. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The boat had left out of Onset Harbor in Wareham.
