A man was taken to the hospital after being pulled out of the Dormont Pool unresponsive at 3:10 this afternoon.
The man, who is 32 or 33, according to Dormont police Chief Russ McKibben, did not respond to resuscitation attempts by lifeguards who had pulled him from the deep end of the pool. He was taken to St. Clair Hospital, then transferred to Mercy Hospital.
The pool was fully staffed today with 14 guards, with nine to 11 on duty at a given time, according to the chief. More than one guard responded to the man, who was in 9-foot-deep water.
Chief McKibben said he could recall no drowning at the pool in his 26 years in the borough.
Allegheny County homicide detectives are investigating.
