Boy drowns after another pushes him into pool in Odzaci: Lifeguard is a deaf-mute person
* As the Higher Public Prosecutor's Office has told Telegraf, there will be no criminal proceedings because the incident concerns a child under the age of 14 * Additional checks have been ordered in order to determine the possible responsibility of the management of the pool in Odzaci
The body of 10-year-old boy B.P. was found last night at around 10:20 pm in the city swimming pool in Odzaci, near the town of Sombor. As confirmed for Telegraf from the Higher Public Prosecutor's Office in Sombor, another child pushed the victim into the pool.
"The child was pushed into the pool by another child. There will be no criminal proceedings because the child cannot be held criminally responsible as he is under the age of 14. It is true that the lifeguard at the pool is a deaf-mute person, and that is why no one heard anything," the prosecutor with the Higher Public Prosecutor's Office in Sombor told our portal.
During the checks conducted by the police, it was determined that the boy (8) most likely pushed the 10-year-old into the pool, and that they were alone at the facility at the time.
In order to determine all the circumstances, and in order to take a statement from the 8-year-old boy, the Center for Social Welfare and a child psychologist will be engaged.
The competent public prosecutor's office also ordered additional checks in order to determine the possible responsibility of the management of the pool in Odzaci.
