Man drowns in Bridgehampton pool

Aug 13, 2010 2:02 PM

The body of a 35-year-old man was discovered at the bottom of a pool at a private residence on Meadows West in Bridgehampton on Wednesday afternoon, according to police.

A family member returning from running errands discovered the victim and called 911 at about 2 p.m., Southampton Town Police said in a press release Friday. Members of the Bridgehampton Fire Department and Town Police attempted to resuscitate the man, according to the release, and he was transported to Southampton Hospital by ambulance, where he was officially pronounced dead.

Police said the man knew how to swim and used the pool often. The cause of death has not been determined and remains under investigation by detectives and the Suffolk County medical examiner’s office, though police said the incident does not appear to be suspicious.

Police said they will not be releasing the victim’s identity.

How did you find out? What is crp?

Maybe the bigger question is why was a "young Spanish girl" in a pool that was not properly supervised by people who cared enough to spend 8 hours to get certified in cpr?

And another question is what state were the people there in at 3am where they didn't notice her in distress while they were in the pool WITH her?

How would you know this information? Were you at the party? If so, did you perforn CPR to try and save your friend or just stand there and watch her wasting valuable time?

Perhaps J.Totta should get her facts straight before she makes a statement like that. Our Police, E.M.S, and Fire Dept. always go above and beyond the call of duty, "when they are called to do so!" But if there is a "delay" in notifying them of an emergency, don't blame them, blame those at fault, the party goers.......
