MEXICO — An unresponsive man was pulled from the Swift River on Monday night and rushed to Rumford Hospital, Oxford County Sheriff’s Maj. Dana Thompson said in a news release.

Deputies responded about 8 p.m. to a report of a person who may have drowned near the recreation trail, he said.

“Three Oxford County Sheriff Deputies arrived on scene and without hesitation entered the water where they located and retrieved an unresponsive adult male,” Thompson said. “Deputies immediately began CPR and continued lifesaving efforts until relieved by Mexico FD and rescue personnel,” he wrote.

The man was undergoing emergency medical care and it was unknown if he will survive his injuries, the major said.

“The lifesaving efforts of Oxford County Sheriff’s Deputies Corporal Joshua Aylward, Deputy Matthew Steinort and Deputy Corey Smith significantly contributed to the man’s chance of survival,” Thompson said.

The man’s identity is being withheld until a thorough investigation is completed and the full extent of his injuries are known, the major said.
