Condition Of Men Found In Venetian Canal Improves

The two men found unresponsive in The Venetian Las Vegas resort-casino's outside gondola ride canal earlier this week are no longer in critical condition.

University Medical Center of Southern Nevada confirmed one man was in stable condition and the other was discharged.

Las Vegas Sands said the resort-casino's security guards had kicked the pair off the property before and they had been known to loiter in front of The Venetian on a regular basis.

The company said the two were spotted on video surveillance by security Monday morning jumping a fence to get into the canal outside along Las Vegas Boulevard, but struggled to swim and were unconscious but breathing when the guards pulled them out.

No criminal charges have been filed.
