ELYSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A coroner says the cause of an 8-year-old boy’s death in a swimming pool at a central Pennsylvania amusement park remains inconclusive.

Montour County Coroner Scott Lynn tells The Daily Item in Sunbury (https://bit.ly/29TiMnC ) that Yassin Boudriss, of Lebanon, may have had a medical condition that led to his death before he was found in about three feet of water at Knoebels Amusement Park & Resort Saturday afternoon.

The amusement park has said a lifeguard immediately began emergency care on the boy who later died at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.

Lynn says the cause and manner of the boy’s death is “pending further investigation and testing.”
