Teen drowns after sneaking into Rockville pool
A 15-year-old Rockville boy drowned at a community pool after sneaking in when it was closed, Montgomery County police said.
Hafis Kareem, of the 700 block of Monroe Street, died Saturday night after going into the pool near the New Mark Commons area of Rockville in the 600 block of Tegner Way, police said.
The teen was with a group of juveniles who sneaked into the pool after closing at about 11 p.m.
Someone in the group yelled to a passerby to call 911, and emergency personnel arrived on scene to perform CPR on Mr. Kareem.
The teen was taken to a hospital where he died.
