BALTIMORE (WJZ)– A 14-year-old boy who was pulled from the bottom of a swimming pool in Baltimore died at the hospital Wednesday night.

Louis Lowenthal was a freshman at Towson High School and member of the Meadowbrook Aquatic Club in the 5700-block of Cottonworth Avenue.

The club said that on Sunday, someone saw Lowenthal go into the pool. That witness left the pool area but when they returned, found Lowenthal at the bottom of the pool. A lifeguard pulled him out and performed CPR, but was unable to revive him.

Medics called to the scene transported Lowenthal to Sinai Hospital.

“The organization sends its thoughts and prayers to the family,” the club said in a written statement.
