A 53-year-old man from Pennsylvania drowned while swimming at a Wildwood Crest beach, authorities said.

Joel Green of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, was found unresponsice by other swimmers who pulled him from the water about 4 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7, Tuesday Wildwood Crest police said.

When police arrived, a beachgoer was performing CPR, police said.

An officer continued giving CPR until Wildwood Crest Rescue and the City of Wildwood Fire/Water Rescue arrived to assume life-saving measures on the man, police said.

Green was transported to Cape Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

“The Wildwood Crest Police Department extends their deepest condolences to Mr. Green’s family and friends,” the department said in a statement. “All bathers are reminded to swim at protected beaches while lifeguards are on duty.”
