DENMARK, Maine (WABI) - Authorities are investigating the death of a man near Walden Pond in Denmark.

Crews performed CPR and tried to revive him.

His wife was with him at the pond.

Right now, his death is not being ruled as a drowning.

The Medical Examiner’s office will now try to determine how Thomas died.
