BARNEGAT -

Two good Samaritans are being praised for rescuing three teens who fell into the ocean after a personal watercraft accident.

The two heroes saved the teens and pulled them out of the Barnegat Bay Saturday after they fell off the vehicle. Paramedics arrived a short time later.

"We just happened to be the only people in the area. I kind of feel anyone would have done the same thing if they were in that area,” says Tyler Sargent who helped to rescued the teens.

A 13-year-old boy was critically injured. He was flown to Jersey Shore University Medical Center for treatment. The other two boys were treated for less serious injuries.
