The victim was identified Dalwon Soo, 25.
He was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Timagos said the victim accidentally drowned while taking a bath in the pool with his mother and friends.
The mother disclosed that her son swam in the swimming pool up to nine feet deep.
She claimed that since her son could swim, it didn't bother her.

It was discovered that the victim was not wearing a life jacket at the time of the tragedy, and that there was no lifeguard assigned to the area. (With TPT)
