The fatal swimming pool accident occurred at around 8:30 PM last Saturday. According to law enforcement authorities, they received several calls regarding a drowning at an apartment complex community pool, the Roswell Police Department reported. Once law enforcement and EMS arrived at Park 83 Apartments, a 4-year-old boy had been pulled from the apartment pool by family members, and he was not responsive.
