3 members of the same family died in a pool accident in East Brunswick, N.J. Video Elephant


EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Three people were found dead Monday in a swimming pool, and police are investigating to determine what happened.

"East Brunswick Police are actively investigating a scene where three people were found deceased in a pool," East Brunswick Police Chief Frank LoSacco said in an email statement.

Police identified the victims as a 62-year-old man, a 32-year-old woman and her 8-year-old daughter. Originally police thought they were responding to a fall victim after a neighbor who heard screaming called 911. 

"This is a devastating day for our entire community. It is too early to determine exactly what happened. We are working with the Middlesex County Prosecutors office and will release information as it develops," LoSacco said in the statement. 

A police monitoring service indicates the drowning victims were discovered at 4:50 p.m Monday at a pool in East Brunswick.
