Accidental drowning death settled

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) A Kansas company will pay $5,000 in fines for not properly maintaining an apartment swimming pool where a 6-year-old boy drowned.

Noah Davis drowned June 29 in a pool at Four Winds apartments in Overland Park. Police say his family could not see him at the bottom of the pool because the water was too murky.

On Tuesday, the management company that operates the pool pleaded guilty to 10 violations, including failure to maintain the water clarity. PASSCO Four Winds was fined a total of $5,000.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/PQ0oug ) that Noah, who wanted to be a policeman, was made an honorary officer of the Shawnee Police Department on Monday, his seventh birthday. He also received a Medal of Valor because his family donated his organs.
