OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City police say rescue crews recovered a swimmer from the water in the area of 92nd Street on Friday afternoon.  The emergency call came in at 2 p.m. but crews were unable to pull the teen out from the water until about 2:50 p.m.   According to Ocean City officials, the 17-year-old swimmer was treated on the scene by Ocean City EMS personnel and taken to Atlantic General Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.  

An Ocean City Beach Patrol Surf Rescue Technician was the first to enter the water but was later assisted by multiple public safety entities. According to the Town of Ocean City, the water rescue included approximately 30 rescue swimmers, from the OCBP and Ocean City Fire Department, as well as personnel from the Ocean City Police Department, United States Coast Guard, Maryland Natural Resource Police and Maryland State Police.  In addition, a single engine air craft participating in the OC Air Show also offered assistance in the air during the search.
