Lifeguards rescue, medics revive struggling swimmer

Lifeguards were able to rescue an unresponsive man from the ocean between the beaches at Marine Street and WindanSea June 9, who was later resuscitated at a local hospital.

Marine Safety Lt. Rich Stropky explained that a man from Texas jumped into the water near the foot of Fern Glen. “We had high surf going on, so he immediately started to struggle and lifeguards had to run down from Marine Street and WindanSea. They rescued the guy, but he had no pulse and was not breathing,” he said. “They did CPR on the beach for 23 minutes and the medics came and took him. Hospital staff were able to save the guy and he is eating and walking again today, but at that time, he was completely gone. So we are stoked about that.”
