Man Drowns During Pool Party at the Clevelander
The busy Miami Music Week festival claimed at least one life this weekend when a man drowned during a pool party at the Clevelander hotel. The 40-year-old man from out of town was swimming in the hotel's pool after drinking heavily and drowned. The hotel was hosting the Nervous Pool Party at the time.
CBSMiami reports that the drowning occurred late Sunday afternoon. The man slipped below the surface, and despite efforts by onlookers to save him and perform CPR, he died.
The station also reports that the man and his friends were believed to be drinking heavily before going in the pool.
The Nervous Pool Party 2 was headlined by superstar DJs like Oscar G, Ralph Falcon, and Junior Sanchez.
