The victim, from Bridgeton, went swimming Friday with three friends and struggled to stay afloat as he went into a deeper part of the pond, police said. Three people pulled him from the water when they saw him sink into the water. 

Millville police officers found him unresponsive. They attempted to resuscitate him through CPR before transporting him to Inspira Medical Center in Vineland. He was pronounced dead on Saturday.
