” Earlier today an incident occurred at the 16th Street Municipal Pool where a young girl began to drown. One of our lifeguards jumped into the pool, removed her from the water, and performed life-saving CPR. McCabe Ambulance, Bayonne Police Department, and the Bayonne Fire Department all responded. Upon leaving the pool complex, and in transport to Bayonne Medical Center, the girl was alert and responsive. I personally thank the lifeguard for his swift and skilled action. Today, he literally saved the life of a child. Thanks also to the quick response by McCabes, PD, and FD.”
