SALT LAKE CITY — A 71-year-old woman was pronounced dead after drowning at an apartment pool Tuesday evening.
Dispatchers received a call around 5 p.m. about a woman floating face-down in the pool. The apartment building is located near 600 North and Oakley Street in Salt Lake City.
The call came from patrons at the pool who noticed the woman. Sgt. Keith Horrocks with the Salt Lake City Police Department said the woman arrived at the pool around 3 p.m. and was alone at the time.
