Rescue Calls Exceed 1,000 for Atlantic City Beach Patrol
Summer 2020 will go down as the busiest season ever for the hard working crew of the Atlantic City Beach Patrol.
The latest rescue by the beach patrol happened last week as both a boy and a girl had to be rescued separately, according to a report by the The Press of Atlantic City.
Recent summer rescues include a girl almost drowning on the North Carolina Avenue beach and a boy who was pulled out off the water unconscious on the Michigan Avenue beach. Fortunately, the boy was able to breathe on his own after receiving oxygen; he was ultimately taken to AtlanticCare Regional Medical Center for treatment.
So far, there have been over 1,000 rescues from the water and over 460 medical assistance cases.
