Elderly man found dead in Burlington pool


Police in Halton are investigating the death of an 89-year-old man, found in a swimming pool early Monday morning.

Officers were called to the building on Lakeshore near Park Lawn, at around 6 on Monday morning. That's where they found the body of the man in the water.

He was pulled from the pool and pronounced dead at the scene.

"We're investigating what led to him ending up in the pool, whether it was some sort of medical issue." says Constable Ryan Anderson from Halton Regional Police.

But Anderson says it doesn't appear the man was swimming, and foul play is not suspected.

The building is an apartment and the pool is private, but police have confirmed the man did life at that address.
