2 rescued from The Venetian hotel-casino’s canal.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — 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.

Erica Nansen, spokeswoman with the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, confirmed Thursday that one man was in stable condition and the other was discharged. Las Vegas Sands Corp. spokesman Ron Reese 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.

Monday for a reported drowning or diving accident at The Venetian property’s man-made canal, known for hosting gondola rides that go inside and outside the casino-hotel. He says 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.
