A water rescue team from the Seaside Park Volunteer Fire Company saved an ocean swimmer late Sunday afternoon, a department official said.
Crews responded to the M Street beach around 4 p.m. on a report of a swimmer in distress, said Lt. Dennis Vincent.
Upon arrival, the team spotted a woman stranded about 250 yards off the shoreline, he said.
Chief Mike Tumolo directed the team to launch a rescue boat, which was operated by Vincent and also contained Todd Larsen and Wes Gorman, according to Vincent.
“The woman was brought into shore safely,” he said.
