Park City High School student dies over the weekend

Sheriff’s Office says cause of death is currently unknown

An 18-year-old Park City High School student died over the weekend while at his parent’s home in a Snyderville Basin neighborhood, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

At 5:51 p.m. on Sunday, March 12, dispatch received a call about an unconscious male lying face down in a hot tub at his parent’s home. Lt. Andrew Wright, with the Sheriff’s Office, said the victim’s parents knew he was getting in the hot tub and went to check on him after about 30 minutes.

Wright said the investigation is currently ongoing before he added, “There is no reason to believe that there was any foul play, but it is inconclusive pending results from the Medical Examiner’s Office.

“We would never speculate, but we literally have nothing to go on to make us believe it was anything other than a medical event,” Wright said.
