A man was found unconscious at the bottom of a pool during his 32nd birthday party at a home in Glenbrook, Stamford, USA on Sunday.
He was later identified as Michelet Mongerard. He was pulled from the pool by his cousin just after 7pm, and was able to resuscicate him by performing CPR before medics rushed him from the home located on Greenfield road to Stamford Hospital. He died at the hospital a short time later.
Police believe the man’s death was accidental because the 20 to 30 family and friends at the party said he could swim and that he didn’t appear to be intoxicated.
According to police report, no one saw him go into the swimming pool. But authorities said they discovered a “minor” abrasion on his head. It’s unclear if Mongerard slipped and hit his head before falling into the pool, and authorities are still investigating.
For now, officials said the cause of death will likely be ruled as an accidental drowning.
