Toledo teen pulled from hotel pool is identified


A Toledo teenager who apparently drowned while swimming Saturday at the Days Inn pool, 1800 Miami St. in East Toledo, was identified as Deshawn Davis of Macomber Street.

Toledo police said the youth died of an apparent drowning accident. An autopsy is scheduled Monday by the Lucas County Coroner’s Office.

Witnesses said the boy, 16, jumped into the pool and went to the bottom. After coming to the surface, he went to the bottom again, the police report said. One of the witnesses jumped into the pool to bring the teen back to the surface.

Toledo police performed CPR before the boy was taken to Bay Park Community Hospital, Oregon, where he was pronounced dead.
