Drowning Health Club Pool Ruled Accidental

A recent investigation into the drowning of a boy at a South Austin gym has been ruled accidental, reports say.  

The family of a four-year-old Austin boy who died after swimming at the outdoor pool at LifeTime Fitness was told recently that the death of the child, Colin Holst, was the result of an accident.

 

Holst died one day after a lifeguard pulled him unconscious from the outdoor pool, even as

other staff members performed CPR on the child. The pool was reportedly fully staffed with seven lifeguards at the time of the accident.
