Two swimmers entered the water and it took approximately 90 seconds for the swimmers to reach the victim. Using the tide, the swimmers brought the victim to the shore near the boat house. The swimmers got the victim to shore and immediately initiated life saving measures.

The victim was unresponsive and transported by ambulance to St. Joseph’s Hospital.McKenna2
