Kansas City area teenager downs in subdivision swimming pool


LEE'S SUMMIT, Missouri — A Kansas City area teenager has drowned in a subdivision swimming pool.

Police on Monday identified the victim as 17-year-old Emma Maddy-Ramsey of Lee's Summit. Police spokesman Sgt. Chris Depue said later Monday in an email that the teenager was also known as Emma Aronson. He said the teen was in the process of changing her last name to Aronson, and the family preferred that name be used for her.

Emergency crews responded Friday evening to a report of an unresponsive person.

Police say friends pulled the teen from the pool, and onlookers provided first aid until paramedics arrived. Police say the victim was pronounced dead at a hospital.
