Lifeguards pulled the man from the pool and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He was then transported to nearby Syosset Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The investigation is continuing. Police said it is possible Sobel suffered some sort of medical episode, but the cause of death remains undetermined pending the outcome of an autopsy being conducted by the medical examiner's office.
