Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Demi Moore (above) said she is stunned and sad­dened by the death of a 21-year-old man in the backyard pool of a Los An­ge­les home she owns.

“I am in ab­so­lute shock,” the 52-year-old ac­tor said in a state­ment re­leased through her pub­li­cist, Heidi Lopata.

“I was out of the coun­try, trav­el­ling to meet my daugh­ters for a birth­day cel­e­bra­tion when I got the dev­as­tat­ing news.”

Moore said the death, which oc­curred at a party held by her as­sis­tant in her ab­sence, was an “un­think­able tragedy, and my heart goes out to this young man’s fam­ily and friends”. The man, , named Ede­nil­son Steven Valle, had gone miss­ing for 10 or 15 min­utes be­fore his friends found him float­ing in the deep end of the pool yesterday morn­ing, said Los An­ge­les County coro­ner’s Lt. Fred Cor­ral.

Valle’s fam­ily and friends told in­ves­ti­ga­tors that he didn’t know how to swim, Cor­ral said.

Po­lice and paramedics re­sponded to a 911 call at about 5:15am from the home in west Los An­ge­les. The paramedics started CPR, but Valle was pro­nounced dead at the scene at 5:30 am, Cor­ral said.
