Drowning

Sunday morning Tallahassee police were called to the scene of a drowning.

Police say around 10:50 Sunday morning, someone at the Boardwalk apartment complex called 911 about a possible drowning.

Officers arrived at the apartments and found people trying to give CPR to a black male. Officers took over the CPR, but the victim, 25-year-old Eric Barron, could not be revived.

Witnesses told the police Barron was in a swimming contest to see who could swim the longest underwater. Witnesses say they realized something was wrong when Barron stopped in the middle of the pool during his turn.
