Tragedy befalls Bagley Family during summer trip to New Hampshire

By Josh Resnek

Melissa Bagley did not hesitate when her 10-year-old son was pulled by the current at a popular waterfall, according to New Hampshire officials.

Melissa Bagley

Bagley, 44, was a part of a family of six from Lynn Massachusetts, visiting Franconia Falls in the White Mountain National Forest last Tuesday afternoon.

Her 10-year-old slipped and fell into a pool of water and could not escape the fast circulating current. An elder son jumped into the water and got wedged between the boulders before being recused by his father, Everett Police Lt. Sean Bagley.

“Melissa Bagley jumped into the river to help her child and began immediately having trouble,” said Sgt. Heidi Murphy, of the State Fish and Gaming Department, according to a report on Boston.com.

Two other children jumped in to help their brother and mother. They were able to get the child out of the water, but an 18-year-old brother who was trying to help became lodged in boulders, Murphy said, according to Boston.com report.

The father searched for Bagley and found her in water below the falls, police said. He began CPR but she could not be revived, according to Boston.com report.

Around the city…

Major League Soccer is reportedly on its way Everett.

Revolution coming

Five years ago, it would have been impossible to imagine a professional soccer team coming to Everett let alone building a soccer stadium to hold 25,000 soccer fans.

Ten years ago this was not even the stuff of dreams.

Today, it appears the New England Revolution are coming to Everett and are going to build a stadium here.

Many of us are now awaiting the official announcement which, we believe, is set to come and soon.

A stadium by itself will cost untold millions to build.

The land must be cleared. The pollution must be mitigated. The land must then be prepared and then the soccer stadium can be built.

This is, we believe, several years away but when it is complete and the first 25,000 or so fans come to Everett, and then thousands of them spill over into the casino after the game… well…it is a business bonanza.

This type of investment on lower Broadway is about as good as it gets to replace a former power station.
