DOSWELL, Va. (AP) - Authorities say no charges will be filed in the drowning of a 5-year-old boy in a motel pool near the Kings Dominion amusement park.

The Hanover County Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday that investigators have concluded the death of Giovanne Ofosu-Antwi was accidental.

Giovanne was found in the pool at the Days Inn Doswell last Saturday. He was taken to a hospital, where he died. The boy lived in Dumfries.

The sheriff’s office says investigators consulted with prosecutors and determined that charges were not appropriate.
