NEW MARKET, Md. (WDVM) — Update 3:50 p.m.: A child was rescued in a drowning incident in the area of Nightingale Ct and Cold Stream Beach in Lake Linganore on Thursday.
The child was in the middle of the lake when a VFD member, who lived nearby, tried to rescue the child, Fire Chief Benjamin Nalborczyk of New Market Volunteer Fire Company told WDVM. He said the initial responder was not able to rescue the child because “of the weight of buoyancy.” The New Market Water and Rescue Team and Frederick County Dive team arrived shortly after and got the child out.
CPR was immediately performed in the rescue boat and the child was taken to the hospital. Details on the child’s condition are pending.
