MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee County medical examiner’s office says the death of a 7-year-old boy who drowned while attending a birthday party at a Milwaukee hotel was an accident.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1thPMgj ) reports Noah Beckley was attending the party with about a dozen other children at the Comfort Inn and Suites on Saturday. Ten adults also were present.

The hotel has two pools - one only a foot deep and another with a depth of about five feet.

Surveillance video reviewed by Milwaukee police showed the boy walking to the end of the deep pool by himself and jumping in. He was underwater about five minutes before someone saw him and pulled him from the pool.

Investigators were told the boy did not know how to swim.
