Teen in critical condition after being dragged out of pond

A teen boy is in “extremely critical” condition after being dragged from a pond in Trevor this afternoon.

According to the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department, at 2:58 p.m.,¬†Kenosha County Sheriff’s Deputies responded with Salem Fire/Rescue to a paintball park in the 29000 block of ¬†Wilmot Road, Trevor for a possible drowning victim. Patrons were swimming on the property, supervised by a life guard. The life guard had been counting the members of one particular group in the pond and came up one short. As the life guard began to search for the missing person, one of the other group members stepped on someone who was already under water. The group members and the life guard immediately drug the subject, a 15-year-old boy, out of the water, where the life guard and the owner of the facility began performing CPR. Salem Fire/Rescue arrived and continued life saving measures while the boy was transported to St. Catherine’s Hospital. At this time the boy is in extremely critical condition. The boy was found in six to seven feet of water. He was visiting the facility with a church youth group from the Chicago area. The investigation as to how and why the boy may have gone under water is ongoing. Foul play is not suspected. No additional information is available at this time.
