Posted: July 20, 2013

A 45-year-old Gloucester County man with cerebral palsy drowned while exercising in his family's inground pool Thursday, authorities said.

The man, whose name was not released, was found at the bottom of the pool's deep end by family members who left him briefly unattended at the residence in the 1000 block of Spruce Avenue in Monroe Township, authorities said.

He was rushed to Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Washington Township and pronounced dead at 6:06 p.m. The Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office and the Monroe Township police preliminarily determined the drowning was accidental.
