Boston police are investigating “an apparent suicide” on a yacht owned by Boston Red Sox owner John Henry, according to a report from The Boston Globe.

Per the report, the yacht was docked at Rowes Wharf near Boston’s financial district, where emergency personnel responded around noon ET on Monday.

As Christina Hager of WBZ TV tweeted, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis was on the scene, along with police officers and medics:

Hager also tweeted a picture of medics leaving the yacht at 12:51 p.m. ET:

Chris Gobeille, also of WBZ, tweeted a similar picture at 1:05 p.m. ET.

The man found by emergency personnel was reportedly a “28-to-30-year-old male,” whom responders attempted to revive upon finding him in cardiac arrest, per The Boston Globe. Efforts were unsuccessful, and the man was later pronounced dead.

The identity of the man has not yet been released, nor was the identity of the caller who alerted police of the situation. The Boston police are referring questions to the Boston Red Sox, who released a statement on the incident, per Jon Morosi of FoxSports.com

Henry purchased the Red Sox in 2002 and is also the principal owner of English Premier League football club Liverpool. He is co-owner of Roush Fenway Racing and founder of John W. Henry & Company.
