No new information was available Tuesday evening about a Lodi man who nearly drowned on Sunday morning in Lodi Lake.

The man was given cardiopulmonary resuscitation and taken to Lodi Memorial Hospital, where he was placed in a medically induced coma, according to Lodi police. It was the man’s 27th birthday.

The man allegedly drove his car to the north end of Laurel Avenue, just east of Lodi Lake, and took a large wad of currency and burned it before swimming to the middle of the lake, police Sgt. Doug Chinn said.

A passerby saw him at 6:37 a.m. and called 911, Chinn said. Two Lodi firefighters put on life jackets, swam about 60 yards and brought the man to shore within about seven minutes, Lodi Fire Department Battalion Chief George Juelch said.

The man wasn’t breathing when he returned to shore, Juelch said, so paramedics from American Medical Response performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He was breathing again before being taken to Lodi Memorial, Juelch said.

    Is it news worthy to report "nothing new to report"---I mean why bother?
    Follow up on the grape bowl issues would be a better use of LNS time and space.

    Where's Doug claiming it's a "GOB network" and the kid must be a relative to the wealthy elite westside powerbrokers? I miss reading his outlandish statements.
