GLEN ROCK, NJ - No good Samaritans in the case of four trespassers who scaled the Glen Rock Memorial Pool fence and called 9-1-1 when one of them was injured.
On Aug. 1 at approximately 3:30 a.m., police responded to a 9-1-1 call concerning an injured person at the pool. Officers located four trespassers, one of which was a minor and another who was injured, inside pool grounds, according to police.
Police determined that all four had entered the grounds of the closed pool by scaling a section of fence. When attempting to leave the area, the victim, a 20-year-old Glen Rock woman, sustained a laceration while attempting to climb of the fence. She was transported by ambulance to Valley Hospital in Ridgewood for a serious, but non-life threatening, laceration to her leg.
A search of the area by both Glen Rock and Ridgewood Police found no other persons in the vicinity, police said.
After determining the nature of the incident did not fall under New Jersey’s Good Samaritan Law, which provides a certain level of immunity to those who aid an injured victim, each of the three adults were issued summonses for trespassing – a petty disorderly persons offense, according to police.
The fourth individual, a juvenile, was released to the custody of his father on the scene. The disposition of his case will be handled informally in accordance with New Jersey’s juvenile justice procedures.
