MILWAUKEE (AP) - A 19-year-old man has died after breaking into a municipal swimming pool in Milwaukee.

The medical examiner identified the man on Thursday as Christopher Taylor of Milwaukee, and said he died of freshwater drowning.

Police say Taylor was smoking marijuana at Washington Park with several friends when he climbed over a fence at the pool at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

He jumped in the pool, began having trouble and sank to the bottom.

A police officer pulled Taylor from the pool, but he could not be revived.
