WILDWOOD, N.J. — A 6-year-old Philadelphia boy died on Friday after he was pulled from a pool at a resort on the Jersey Shore, authorities said Saturday.

Wildwood police and firefighters said emergency responders were called to Beachside Resort just before 6:30 p.m. on Friday and took over from citizens at the scene who were trying to revive the victim.

Officials said the boy, whose name wasn’t released, was taken to Cape Regional Medical Center, but efforts to save him were unsuccessful.

Wildwood police and the Cape May County prosecutor’s office are investigating.
