Man drowns in Dallas pool

DALLAS — A 22-year-old Dallas man died after being found unresponsive at the Dallas Aquatic Center Saturday afternoon.

At about 2:26 p.m., aquatic center employees called 911 saying CPR was in progress on a person at the pool, according a press release from the Dallas Police Department.

Lifeguards attempted lifesaving efforts until Dallas Fire & EMS medics arrived to take over. Medics took the man, Marshall Weaver, to Salem Health West Valley, where attempts to save his life were unsuccessful, police said.

Dallas Police Department, in conjunction with the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office and the Polk County District Attorney, are investigating the incident.

“At this point, it appears this was a tragic drowning accident,” Dallas Police Chief Tom Simpson said in the release.

The department didn’t have additional details by Monday evening, but will release more as soon as it is appropriate, Simpson said.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help pay for Weaver's funeral expenses:
