Here’s the exchange:
Story Headline or URL : Young boy dies in pool in Doswell
Short description of typo or inaccuracy : Are you telling me that nobody
pulled the boy from the pool but simply called 911 and left him floating?
Tell me your story is just wrong and emergency responders didn’t pull this poor kid out of the pool.
Good evening XXXXXXXXX,
Our story reflects exactly what emergency officials told us when we spoke with them about this incident.
Dude. What has happened to us? That’s just heart breaking. Please verify with the authorities before 11pm broadcast.Good evening xxxxxxxxx,
I spoke with the contact for Hanover Fire directly, and he explained they received the call for service just before 3 p.m.When emergency crews arrived, they found the child in the pool floating in critical condition. He was then given CPR and taken to an area hospital where he tragically died.
This is a tragic event and it was not easy to write about but those are the details we were provided by officials.
