This is every parents worst nightmare! No one wants to receive the news that their child is deceased. Unfortunately, some Northeast Columbus parents had to receive this news this week. A 16 yr old drowned in an apartment complex swimming pool.

The incident took place Tuesday in the 1800 block of Forest Village Lane at the Central Square Apartments at 5:04 pm. First responders performed CPR on the teen. The victim was pronounced dead at 6pm at St. Ann’s Hospital. Detectives weren’t certain if the boy was alone at the pool or if he dove or jumped into the water. There was a sign saying that no life guard was on duty. No one under 18 is allowed unaccompanied in the swimming area.

Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the victim. Our hearts go out to you.
