Bridgewater police announced the death of 18-year-old Pedro Rosa on Monday.

Officers had gone to the river late Sunday afternoon after receiving a 911 call about a distressed swimmer. Once there, they saw Rosa’s friends pulling him out of the water, just north of the Route 22 west bridge.

The Elizabeth man did not have a pulse at first, but authorities say he soon resumed breathing after CPR was performed. He was taken to a hospital where he died early Monday.
