A man was electrocuted while swimming in a motel pool in New Jersey last month. According to officials, a 34-year-old man was swimming in a pool at the Aztec Motel in Wildwood when he came in contact with stray voltage underwater. As the man went into convulsions, a 17-year-old Fair Lawn boy jumped into the water to save him. The boy was also electrocuted in the water. Emergency responders claimed they too felt the electricity when they went into the water to save the man. The man was rushed to the Philadelphia hospital where he remains in critical condition. The motel owner claims the incident was caused by a nearby light.
