Just prior to 2:30 pm, Thursday, July 22, 2010, firefighters and paramedics from the Upper Marlboro area were alerted to a possible drowning at a residential pool. Fire/EMS units arrived at a home in the 9200 block of Fairhaven Avenue and discovered 2 people in the pool. The victims were removed and both were found to be non-breathing and without a pulse; CPR was immediately initiated.
Initial 911 calls indicated that a teen-aged male had jumped into a neighbor’s pool and went motionless and that an adult male was on the way to help.
Details are still sketchy and updates will be provided as soon as possible.
