BRICK, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a teenager was pulled from a New Jersey lagoon and rushed to the hospital.

Brick Township police say officers were sent to the scene at about 6 p.m. Saturday after the 15-year-old youth was reported unconscious and unresponsive.

Police said he had been swimming in the lagoon in back of a residence with several friends when he went under and did not resurface.

Police said a search began and the homeowner found the youth near the bottom after several dives into the lagoon. He was pulled into a nearby vote, where people tried to revive him.

Police, emergency medical technicians and paramedics arrived and continued resuscitation efforts before the youth was taken to Jersey Shore Medical Center, where his condition wasn't immediately available.
