Rumor control: No drowning in Point Beach this weekend

In News

We’ve received numerous inquires about a drowning in Point Pleasant Beach on Sunday afternoon.

That’s false.

Authorities say Jenkinson’s Ocean Rescue lifeguards rescued a 10-year-old girl from the ocean shortly after 5 p.m.

The girl, who was at the beach with a parent, was transported to Ocean Medical Center in Brick for treatment of an unspecified non-life threatening injury.
