A 68-year-old DeBary woman died on Thursday after being found unresponsive in the community pool at a local apartment complex.

Volusia County Sheriff’s Office deputies, along with Volusia County Fire Rescue crews and paramedics, responded to the Integra 289 Exchange apartment complex located at 115 Integra Reserve Lane at around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 9.

The sheriff’s office stated that a witness on a nearby balcony had spotted a person floating in the pool. The witness pulled the victim out of the water and began performing CPR until law enforcement and paramedics arrived on scene.

According to VCSO, the victim regained a pulse and was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition. Sadly, she was unable to recover and passed away on Thursday afternoon.
