Teen drowns in Vanderbijlpark pool
Johannesburg - A teenager drowned in a public swimming pool in Vanderbijlpark on Wednesday, paramedics said.
Witnesses saw the 16-year-old boy sitting on the side of the pool one minute and in the water the next, said ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson.
Lifeguards pulled him out of the water and tried to resuscitate him.
It appeared that he was stabilising and a helicopter was called to take him to hospital, but his condition deteriorated and he died, said Jackson.
