According to the Stockton Record’s report, “(Jon) Nakanishi was able to swim to shore, but his muscles froze and his heart reportedly stopped. A brother-in-law performed CPR and revived him before he could be transported,” to the hospital.
The elder Nakanishi said doctors unsuccessfully tried to pull his son out of his coma to do some observation.
“It's getting more serious,” Alan Nakanishi said Monday morning. “We are very much in pain, and just praying. We have to be positive and think he will come out of it.”
