The Maryland medical examiner has “unpended” release of the cause and manner of death of 14-year-old North Baltimore Aquatic Club swimmer Louis Lowenthal, as well as the autopsy report. I will publish the latter as soon as I have it.

As expected, the coroner ruled accidental death from “complications of near-drowning.”

Young Lowenthal died last October 31, three days after being pulled from the bottom of a practice pool at Meadowbrook Aquatic Center. The death raised questions about safety procedures at Meadowbrook, which is owned by Murray Stephens, the founder of the swim club, who had been forced out of his position as CEO there a year earlier amid allegations of sexual abuse of a former swimmer.

    There are witnesses in this NBAC drowning and none are coming forward and that is disgusting!

    Please call for a thorough police investigation for involuntary manslaughter. Questions in subsequent articles should include: How many lifeguards were on duty that morning in relation to the volume of swimmers? Who delivered the CPR and were they certified? Was any part of the pool obfuscated from the lifeguard’s point of view at the time of death? Was it 8-minutes or 10-minutes that Louis was underwater before being discovered?

    Ooops, did I just give away how many lifeguards were on duty that morning? I wonder?
