Pennsylvania man drowns in waters off New Jersey shore

OCEAN GROVE, N.J. (AP) -- A Pennsylvania man has drowned while swimming at the New Jersey shore.

Authorities say 42-year-old Gabriel D'Abruzzo, of Pittsburgh, began struggling shortly after he entered the ocean waters off Ocean Grove around 9:40 p.m. Monday.

D'Abruzzo was soon pulled from the waters by bystanders who performed CPR, but he was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later.

Emergency responders initially were told a second struggling swimmer was still in the water. They then searched for about 45 minutes before determining D'Abruzzo was the lone victim.
