FARMINGVILLE - Officials say two men were pulled from a cesspool in Farmingville tonight.

The men were at a home on Blue Point Road, apparently working to try and cover the cesspool, when they fell in. First Assistant Fire Chief Ralf Gloria says the second man may have gone in after trying to get the first victim out.

Gloria believes the men were in cardiac arrest when they were transferred to Stony Brook Hospital, but their conditions are not known. Their names and ages have also not yet been released.

Fire marshals say they are continuing to investigate the incident.
