Man nearly drowns after fall into Ortley Beach pool
An Ortley Beach man remains hospitalized following a near-drowning in a swimming pool Saturday.
Toms River police say they found a 54-year-old man in a pool and not breathing in the 400-block of 8th Avenue early Saturday evening around 6:40 p.m. Friends say he had been sitting by the pool and called 911 when they found him in the water about 15 minutes later.
An EMT team performed CPR on the man - who also has a Wayne - address before taking him to Community Medical Center in Toms River for further treatment.
Police have not identified the man and his current condition is unknown.
