Conn. Student Dies after being Pulled from Pool

MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — Police say a 14-year-old student has died after he was pulled from a Manchester High School swimming pool during a swim class.

Manchester police Capt. Chris Davis said the freshman student was participating in a class led by a physical education teacher Wednesday morning when he was found under water. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

Officials have not released the student’s identity.

Davis said it is too soon to say exactly what happened and a full review will be conducted.
