Swimming In Dirty Waters
This one is just plain nasty! A bunch of young celebs enjoyed the pool at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel over the weekend, oblivious to the fact that someone had just died in the pool the week before--and the hotel never bothered to drain the water, reports Page Six.

Ed Winter, assistant chief of investigations for the Los Angeles County coroner's office, told The Post: "He was found at the bottom of the pool wearing swimming trunks. The staff at the hotel found him, but we don't know who actually removed him from the pool."

"The hotel management had a meeting, where they told staffers the pool didn't need to be drained" because "there was enough chlorine in it to kill the bacteria."

One week after the incident, Lindsay Lohan, Samantha Ronson, Eve, Kevin Connolly and Stacy Keibler "were swimming in the unchanged water."

Apparently the guy died from the "result of alcohol consumption." That's sad and gross at the same time. We'll definitely twice before we swim in that pool again!

UPDATE: The Page Six story is not true. Hollyscoop has received a statement from the Roosevelt Hotel. The statement reads:

Last week there was a death surrounding the property of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Out of respect for the family, Thompson has not released the name of the deceased nor any private details.

Unfortunately this morning inaccurate reports regarding the incident occurred. The death in fact was not pronounced at the Hollywood Roosevelt, it was pronounced away from the hotel, only after the individual was taken away by emergency medical staff in an ambulance.

We can assure guests who have used the pool since the incident that proper procedures were taken, and the pool was drained and cleaned once authorities completed their on-site investigation.

Thompson Hotels hope that journalists will respect the family during this time of loss and suffering, and share our deepest sympathies.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
