HARPSWELL (AP) — A 19-year-old lobsterman dragged overboard into the frigid ocean waters off York County is alive and expected to survive thanks to his dad and another crew member.

Devin Pesce of Lisbon Falls was pulled into the water Wednesday morning when his ankle got tangled in rope as the crew was dropping traps.

Lucky Oppedisano told the Portland Press Herald the teen was under for several minutes before he was pulled back aboard. Oppedisano said Devin Pesce wasn’t breathing, but he and Dan Pesce, Devin’s father, administred CPR until the teen revived.

They then headed to shore. Devin Pesce is in the hospital in serious condition.
