Boy found dead in Springfield school pool

Officials in Springfield said Friday that a 12-year-old boy died during a middle school swimming class, and city and school officials are promising a full investigation. Police and school officials say the boy was found dead at about 2:30 p.m. during a regular physical education class at Kiley Middle School, about half an hour before school ended. Police said the boy, whose name was not released, was pronounced dead at Baystate Medical Center. Superintendent Daniel Warwick told reporters at a press conference at the school that he did not immediately know how many children were in the class, which was being led by a physical education instructor.
