Wake service held for Yonkers lifeguard

A wake service was held Wednesday in Eastchester for a Yonkers lifeguard who drowned in the waters off the Jersey Shore over the holiday weekend.



John Crimmins, 22, was a lifeguard at Lake Isle Country Club in Eastchester. He was also the stepson of Yonkers Schools Superintendent Michael Yazurlo.



Officials say Crimmins suffered a seizure while swimming in the ocean off Mantoloking, New Jersey, which resulted in his death.



His funeral is scheduled for Thursday at the Immaculate Conception Church in Tuckahoe.
