Police have identified the Red Bank man who died yesterday while cleaning a residential pool in Rumson as Luis Javier Rojas, of Lexington Avenue, according to the Asbury Park Press. He was 25 years old.
From the story:
Rojas, who is from Mexico City, had been dropped off Wednesday morning at the Somerset Drive residence to clean the pool, according to police. The residents were not home at the time.
Two other employees of the Edgewater Pool Company in Little Silver returned to pick up Rojas later in the morning and found him unresponsive in the pool and called 911, police said. The Rumson First Aid Squad attempted unsuccessfully to revive him.
Rojas was an employee of the pool company, and not a day laborer, police said. He has two brothers who live in the area.
Police said they did not know if Rojas could swim. There are no eyewitnesses to the drowning.
The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and the county Medical Examiner were called to the scene. The cause of death was ruled to be drowning, but the case remains under investigation.
