EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Authorities say a teenager pulled out of his Connecticut high school's swimming pool during gym class has died.
The district's superintendent told parents in a letter Wednesday that "an incident" happened during a gym class in the pool area and that it remained under investigation. He didn't disclose details or the student's identity.
Emergency crews received a report at around 12:30 p.m. of an unresponsive student in the pool. The superintendent says that a bystander was performing CPR when rescuers arrived and that the teen was taken to a hospital.
An autopsy was planned to determine if the boy drowned or if other medical factors were involved.
