TACOMA, Wash. — Officials say an 8-year-old boy who was pulled from a Tacoma pool last week has died.
The News Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/GFtu9t ) that Metro Parks Tacoma made the announcement Thursday.
The boy had been at a hospital since he was pulled unconscious from the Steward Heights Pool July 27.
Metro Parks Tacoma spokesman Hunter George says the child had been at the pool with a day camp from Peace Community Center.
A Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department report says he was found unconscious by lifeguards in water that was 3 feet, 9 inches deep.
The report says a lifeguard began CPR and used an automated external defibrillator, which showed the boy still had a pulse.
The boy was in intensive care at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital until his death.
