Richmond Hill Post - - Crime -

York Re­gional Po­lice is cur­rently in­ves­ti­gat­ing a drown­ing in­ci­dent that took place at a con­do­minium at 7300 Yonge St., near Clark Av­enue, on July 31.

Po­lice re­ceived a call of med­i­cal dis­tress at ap­prox­i­mately 11:50 a.m.

When they ar­rived at the res­i­dence along with fire and am­bu­lance per­son­nel, they found a male res­i­dent be­lieved to be in his 80s float­ing in the pool with­out vi­tal signs present.

Paramedics made at­tempts to re­vive the man us­ing CPR, but ef­forts were un­suc­cess­ful, and he was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

Po­lice have not yet re­leased a cause of death and are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing to de­ter­mine the ex­act cause of the drown­ing but be­lieve that there is no cause for sus­pi­cion of foul play. A po­lice spokesper­son has said that they be­lieve it is more likely that the vic­tim suf­fered a med­i­cal emer­gency.
