HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) — A 16-year-old boy from the Detroit area is hospitalized after being pulled from a western Michigan pool during a swim meet.
Nolan Gutenschwager was in critical condition Monday at an area hospital.
The Wyandotte Roosevelt High School student was resuscitated after he was pulled Friday from the water at the Holland Community Aquatic Center. State high school swimming and diving championships were being held at the center.
The Holland Sentinel reported that he was taking part in diving warmups and may have suffered a medical emergency. The boy was pulled from the water by a lifeguard and a swim coach. The lifeguard performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Aquatic Center Executive Director Jack Huisingh told the Holland Sentinel that the boy has a history of seizures.
