It is reported that an Irish J1 student is in serious condition after getting into difficulty while swimming in the US.

Local media in Ocean City, Maryland, are reporting the fire department was called to assist a group of swimmers yesterday.

It is understood that one of the four people involved managed to make it to shore and raise the alarm at approximately 06.30 before two rescue swimmers helped two of the party out of the water.

Ocean City Emergency Services director Joseph Theobald says that officials urge beach patrons to swim only when lifeguards are on duty.

However during the rescue, the fourth swimmer - the Irish student - began to suffer from the apparent cardiac arrest, according to the OCFD.

The student was brought to shore where CPR was immediately administered, before they were transported to Atlantic General Hospital in a 'very serious condition'.

In separate news from the Department they've revealed that 2017 is likely to be the worst year on record for Irish people dying overseas.

There's also been an increase in the number of child abduction cases.

Unfortunately the rising figures mean it's likely this year will be a record one for deaths overseas.
