Woman, 18, apparently drowns at Glen Cove home

An 18-year-old Brooklyn woman apparently drowned Friday in the pool of a Glen Cove home during a house party, police said.

The teen was pulled out of the deep end of the pool at a Valley Road home by guests at the party, who gave her CPR, Glen Cove police said.

Authorities continued CPR when they arrived but could not revive the teen, who died at the scene, police said.

Police are withholding her name until she is identified by family.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine an official cause and manner of death, police said.

"It's a tragedy for her family," said Glen Cove Police Lt. John Nagle.

A man who identified himself as the owner of the home said he was away from home at a different party when the drowning happened and didn't know the teen or her name.

The apparent drowning occurred a day after Willie Tom, 46, and Celine Fu, 29, disappeared in the waters off Coney Island. The pair went missing around 8:45 p.m. Thursday.

Friday, NYPD divers recovered the bodies of a man and woman.

While police could not immediately confirm that they were the missing Jet Skiers, the U.S. Coast Guard said it suspended its own search for the pair because the police had found them.

The death in Glen Cove marked the sixth apparent drowning on Long Island during the 2013 spring and summer seasons.

A clammer died of an apparent drowning in Flanders Bay on Monday, police said. And a 36-year-old man died of an apparent drowning near Inwood Bay Park on Tuesday, police said.

Earlier this summer, on June 26, Patricia Doyle, 55, a longtime Nassau County Court official, was found dead in the swimming pool of her Azalea Drive home in Syosset by a landscaper, Nassau County police said.

On April 14, Ralph Knowles, 5, and his sister, Sharon Knowles, 7, apparently drowned in a neighbor's 4-foot-deep backyard pool in Central Islip, authorities said.
