A fourth drowning in Minnesota last weekend was reported Tuesday by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.
According to a report, 39-year-old Bobby Jerome Byrum, of Monroe, North Carolina, died due to a freshwater drowning accident on Sunday in Bloomington. Byrum died at 7:41 p.m. at Fairview Southdale Hospital, approximately 45 minutes after he drowned at La Quinta Inn and Suites in Bloomington.
No further information has been provided and police are investigating the case.
Meanwhile, the medical examiner also identified the drowning victim at Moore Lake in Fridley. Leland Michael Morris, 26 of Fridley, died late Sunday night after he was found unresponsive at 5:13 p.m. Sunday.
Morris attempted to swim out to help two kids get back to shore, as they were struggling to do so on their own while using flotation devices, according to the Anoka County Sheriff's Office.
While swimming towards the children, Morris went water and didn't resurface. First responders from the Fridley police and fire departments were unable to locate him, but a dive team arrived and quickly located him.
Morris died just before midnight Sunday.
On Friday, a 9-year-old died in a drowning accident in North Mankato. And a 12-year-old boy died Tuesday morning after he was pulled from a pool at water park in Minneapolis.
