89-year old man found dead in a pool in Burlington: police
Police say cause of death doesn't appear to be suspicious
The body of an 89-year old man was pulled from a pool, police say, on Lakeshore Drive early Monday morning in Burlington.
The identity of the man is known says Cst. Steve Elms, a media relations officer with the Halton Regional Police, but police are not releasing his name at this time.
A neighbour spotted the body floating in the pool from a high rise and called police shortly before 6 a.m., says Elms.
Police and EMS responded to the call and pronounced the man dead on the scene. He did not go to the hospital. Elms called the cause of death an "apparent drowning," but says a post-mortem will be done to confirm the cause.
At this time, Elms says police do not believe the cause of death is suspicious.
