Man who drove into pond in Clearwater remains in critical condition

CLEARWATER — A man who was resuscitated after being pulled from a submerged vehicle Thursday remains hospitalized in critical condition, authorities said Friday afternoon.

Police are not identifying the man until they are able to notify his relatives, said Clearwater police spokeswoman Beth Watts.

The man was rescued by two police officers and three bystanders after he crashed through a fence and went into the pond off State Road 580 near McMullen-Booth Road about 3:15 p.m.

He was not breathing, but Clearwater paramedics restored his pulse before he was taken by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg.
