Boy, 8, drowns in pool at Pennsylvania amusement park

An 8-year-old boy has died after being found unresponsive in a swimming pool at a central Pennsylvania amusement park.

Montour County Coroner Scott Lynn tells The Daily Item in Sunbury that Yassin Boudriss, of Lebanon, was found in about 3 feet of water at Knoebels Amusement Park & Resort Saturday afternoon. Lynn said the boy may have been affected by a medical condition before entering the water. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Knoebels says on Facebook that “a tragedy occurred” when a lifeguard found the boy in a pool. It says the lifeguard immediately began emergency care and the boy was taken to a local hospital.
