Clark County Fire Department Rescues Pair From Venetian Canal

Authorities say two men rescued from the Venetian's canal were hospitalized this week in critical condition.

The Clark County Fire Department said crews were called about 7:45 a.m. Monday for a reported drowning or diving incident at The Venetian property's man-made canal, known for hosting gondola rides that go inside and outside the hotel-casino.

Las Vegas police said hotel security reported the men, who were unresponsive but breathing after trying to swim across a pond area. The case is considered a medical call with no criminal charges filed.
