The Maine Warden Service is investigating the death of a local woman on Pemaquid Pond in Nobleboro.
According to Nobleboro Fire Chief Richard “Moose” Genthner, Jennifer Lynn St. Cyr was pulled from the water approximately 20-40 yards offshore the morning of Friday, Aug. 14.
St. Cyr was brought to shore at the state boat launch and was not breathing. Paramedics from the Central Lincoln County Ambulance Service performed CPR for about 37 minutes before she was declared dead, according to Genthner.
Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy Sean Pfahler was first to arrive. “I arrived shortly after and CLC was right behind me,” Genthner said.
Sgt. Alan Shea, of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, said the Maine Warden Service was en route and would investigate.
Lincoln County Communications dispatched the Nobleboro First Responders at 10:50 a.m.
The Nobleboro Fire Department closed off the entrance to the Route 1 boat launch as the Maine Warden Service responded and started its investigation. The fire department cleared the scene at 1:15 p.m.
A spokesperson for the Maine Warden Service did not have further information on the investigation by press time.
St. Cyr, 40, graduated from Lincoln Academy in 1998 and later graduated from Waldoboro’s Downeast School of Massage. She recently worked at Waltz Soda Fountain in downtown Damariscotta, according to her obituary.
