Two Near Drownings in RivCo, Fire Officials Say

Riverside County firefighters have responded to two near drowning incidents this Labor Day weekend, one in Palm Desert and another in Lake Elsinore.

In the first, a man was said to be in stable condition at a hospital after nearly drowning in the 77000 block of New York Avenue in Palm Desert on Saturday at 3:50 p.m., said Jennifer Fuhrman of the Riverside County Fire Department.

His injury was described as minor.

Just a short time later, at 4:12 p.m. Saturday, firefighters responded to a report of a possible drowning at the La Laguna Resort and Boat Launch at 32040 Riverside Drive in Lake Elsinore, Fuhrman said.

“Firefighters on scene reported two patients needing assistance from a disabled watercraft,” she said.

A man taken to a hospital was in stable condition and a juvenile was released to his parents at the scene, Fuhrman said.

The extent of the man’s injury was not disclosed.
