A going away party turns deadly with the death of a teenager, who officials say drowned in a pool.
14-year-old Sean Michael Alhambra drowned in a private pool during a party Sunday afternoon in Halifax County, according to Major Bruce Temple with the Halifax County Sheriff's Office. The accident happened at a home in the Lakeview area outside Roanoke Rapids.
Authorities say adults pulled Alhambra and his 13-year-old brother out of the pool when they went under the water and didn't surface. Neither knew how to swim, officials say.
The younger brother was revived with CPR and was sent to Pitt County Memorial Hospital for observation.
Alhambra's death has been ruled an accident.
