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.
