Man, 28, drowns after driving ATV into pond

Jason Cordeiro loved the speed and thrill of riding an all-terrain vehicle, racing along wooded trails near his family home in Westport.

"It was always one of his favorite things to do," his brother, David, said by telephone last night. "He always liked to go ride."

Early Saturday morning, Cordeiro, 28, drowned in a Dartmouth pond, apparently after driving a friend's ATV into the water while on an overnight camping trip.

"His friends found the four-wheeler upside down in the water," David Cordeiro said. "From what I know of him, he was a good driver . . . Honestly, I think he hit the wrong brake. He may have hit the front brake instead of the back."

Dartmouth police responded to the scene at 8:30 a.m., shortly after being notified by Cordeiro's family that he was missing, Cotta said. A dive team retrieved his body from about 10 feet of water at 11:45 a.m. A spokesman said the drowning is still under investigation.

"We have a lot of people still to speak with," Lieutenant Ken Cotta said. "We will do a toxicology test" to see if alcohol was involved.

Cordeiro, who worked as a carpenter, met up with about nine friends shortly after finishing work Friday evening, his brother said.

The group, including many fellow ATV enthusiasts, planned to camp out for three days in a thickly wooded area known as the Dartmouth Water Wells.

"They had tents and everything," said David Cordeiro, 31. "In the middle of the night, my brother got up and decided to go for a ride."

Cordeiro owned his own ATV, but did not take it on the trip, his brother said. The vehicle was still at the family home in Westport, where Cordeiro lived with his parents.

When he did not return after several hours, his friends went looking for him. They found the ATV floating in the pond with its lights still on, police said.

Jason Cordeiro knew how to swim, his brother said.

"He was a good swimmer. I guess he just lost consciousness," David Cordeiro said. "There's nothing you can do about that."
