Man dies during late-night swim
Group jumps fence at motel
By Scott DUNN, Wednesday, August 08, 2007
A 24-year-old Hamilton man died in a closed swimming pool early Saturday morning after jumping a fence, police confirmed Tuesday.
Bruce Peninsula Ontario Provincial Police said Bruno LARANJEIRO died after getting into trouble in the pool at the Sauble Lodge Motel on Second Avenue North in Sauble Beach. Police were called at 2 a.m. to investigate a report that someone may have drowned.
"Several persons jumped the fence, locked fence, and were in the pool," Const. Dave MEYER said in an interview Tuesday. "The victim doesn't know how to swim apparently, according to the girlfriend, and she was screaming for help."
People came to his aid and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation but LARANJEIRO died, MEYER said.
A post-mortem exam was done in Owen Sound Sunday.
Police don't suspect foul play.
Asked how LARANGEIRO ended up in the pool, MEYER said "He went swimming… it was a situation he didn't know how to swim. Alcohol was involved."
LARANJEIRO had been drinking at the motel's nightclub, MEYER said.
MEYER referred questions about the cause of death to the coroner's office. Doctor Jack STANBOROUGH said Tuesday it will take more time before a death by drowning can be confirmed because it is arrived at through a process of eliminating other possible causes.
He called it an "apparent drowning."
Jaswinder GREWAL owns the Sauble Lodge Motel. She said in an interview Tuesday she closed the bar at 12: 45 a.m. Saturday and started cleaning for about 20 minutes. She went upstairs to bed and heard someone screaming about 25 minutes later.
She looked out the window and saw six or seven people in the pool.
Initially she was angry that people had jumped the fence to swim and she came down and told them to leave.
Then she grew nervous when she saw three or four people trying to pull the naked victim out of the pool.
Next she phoned 911 but was told an ambulance was already on the way. She returned to the victim and resuscitation efforts were underway. She picked up the man's cold hand.
"I couldn't sleep whole night," GREWAL said.
A pair of underwear was found in the pool later.
Jose MARTINS said in an interview LARANJEIRO and his girlfriend stayed with him and four others in Room 48. MARTINS was Friends with LARANJEIRO and occasionally they attended the same parties.
MARTINS said his friend had been drinking that night but he didn't see him enter the pool because he stayed in the bar. He said his friend was a happy, sociable man. He worked in construction, with asphalt and cement.
He understands after LARANJEIRO's funeral Thursday he will be taken to Portugal for burial.

At least nine drown over civic holiday weekend
By Geoff NIXON, Page A5
The long, hot days of summer see more people hitting lakes, pools and rivers, and subsequently more drownings, often in accidents that could have been prevented.
Over the civic holiday weekend alone, at least nine people drowned nationwide.
"Unfortunately, I'm not surprised," Barbara Byers, public education director of the Lifesaving Society, said of the number of weekend drowning deaths.
"What's sad about it, is that most of these are preventable and that many people just don't realize the risks and aren't quite aware of what they can do to reduce the chances of drowning," she said.
The weekend deaths include two young girls and seven adult men who drowned in separate incidents:
On Saturday, a three-year-old girl drowned in an inflatable pool in her backyard in Stoney Creek, Ontario, near Hamilton, in the early evening.
Earlier that same day, 56-year-old Bernard Morneau of Victoria was found unconscious on the banks of the Athabasca River after his canoe overturned. A 24-year-old Hamilton man also died early Saturday after jumping into a closed swimming pool at a motel in Sauble Beach, Ontario Police said Bruno LARANJEIRO, who was in the pool with several people, didn't know how to swim.
On Sunday, a 39-year-old man drowned after falling off a log in a provincial park near Chilliwack, B.C.
On Monday, a five-year-old girl from Hamilton drowned at a conservation area swimming pool in Dunnville, Ontario, during a church picnic.
There were two other deaths the same day in Ontario: A man drowned in Musselman Lake just north of Stouffville, Ontario, and 19-year-old Lucas TINSLEY drowned at a provincial park northeast of Lake Simcoe.
The body of Calgary's Scott Grimes, 26, was found in Alberta's Clearwater River on Monday. He was last seen on July 29 when he was swept away from a group of fellow swimmers.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police suspect alcohol was a factor in the feared drowning of a 19-year-old man in a provincial park near Moose Jaw in the early hours of yesterday morning. The man had been swimming with a group of young people when he apparently got pulled into the current, police said. He has not been seen since.
The body of 55-year-old Tony WONG was pulled from Chemong Lake near Peterborough, Ontario, yesterday by police divers. He had been fishing with his family Monday and went into the water without a lifejacket.
For children's water safety, Ms. Byers said it is important for them to learn swimming skills, but they also need to be closely supervised.
Ms. Byers added that a drowning can occur without drawing a lot of attention from nearby swimmers, and can happen much more quickly than some would think.
"Parents don't realize how quickly a person can drown, how quiet it is," she said. "Unlike what we may have seen from old movies where people are waving their arms and screaming… that's not what happens.
"Most people, you don't hear anything," she said. "They just get a gulp of water, another gulp of water and then it's over in 30 seconds."
And parents can be vulnerable too: In the two weeks before the holiday weekend, two fathers were killed in tragic accidents while trying to save their children from drowning.
On August 1, a 44-year-old Quebec man drowned while saving his teenage son from undercurrents at Cavendish Beach National Park in Prince Edward Island. In a similar incident only days before, a 47-year-old father of three from Vancouver drowned while trying to save his 10-year-old son who ran into trouble while swimming in Lake Superior.
In both cases, the children survived but their fathers died.
In general, Ms. Byers said, of the few hundred drowning cases that happen each summer, many can be prevented by people taking better stock of their surroundings: The danger comes when people ignore the risks of their swimming environments or overestimate their swimming abilities.

Man, 74, slain in daylight attack
By Canadian Press, Tues., December 18, 2007
Kitchener -- The brazen daylight slaying of a 74-year-old man as he delivered Christmas cards was committed with an "edged weapon," police said yesterday as neighbours paid tribute to a man they called a friendly, peace-loving victim of a brutal and senseless crime.
Police were searching for a man they say attacked Hunter BROWN just steps from his home Saturday before fleeing the scene on foot, leaving his victim to die in a neighbour's driveway, a pile of undelivered Christmas cards on the ground next to him.
"The fact that this kind of assault happens in any community, and in my community now, disturbs me very greatly," Mayor Carl ZEHR said yesterday in an interview.
"It's tragic, it's brutal, senseless and unfathomable, but it did happen."
ZEHR, who knew BROWN from service-club activities, described him as a "quiet, community-minded" man. Kitchener police Insp. Bryan LARKIN called him the "ultimate neighbourhood friendly fellow."
BROWN was found bleeding and unconscious. Doctors pronounced him dead in hospital.
witnesses: said a man in his 20s fled the neighbourhood on foot, clad in a black tuque and long black coat.
Police called the unprovoked attack a "tragic story."
"It was a vicious assault," police spokesperson Olaf HEINZEL said. "It's very disturbing for our community."
Cruisers were blocking the street and a ribbon of police tape surrounded the homes of BROWN and his neighbours as detectives continued to canvass houses and businesses in the hopes of turning up clues to the killer's identity.
"It's still a big mystery," said neighbour Matthew ENGELMANN, 24, who arrived home Saturday to find the area swarming with police.
"People are angry. I would not call people scared. Everybody wants to know what happened and why."
ENGELMANN said he considered it highly unlikely that it was a personally motivated attack on BROWN, whom he called a "great person."
The victim and his wife, Beverly, had lived in their two-storey home for more than 30 years.

Two prison guards facing charges in death of female prisoner
Evidence changes apparent suicide of 19-year-old into criminal investigation
By The Canadian Press, Page A7
Kitchener -- Two male correctional officers at Kitchener's prison for women are facing charges in the death of a 19-year-old inmate last week.
Ashley SMITH of New Brunswick died of an apparent suicide in a cell at Grand Valley Institution for Women last Friday.
Inspector Bryan LARKIN of Waterloo Regional Police said the initial investigation did not indicate foul play.
But he added that "pieces of evidence" turned it into a criminal investigation.
Two officers at the institution were charged yesterday afternoon with criminal negligence causing death.
Insp. LARKIN said a third arrest is expected.
Ms. SMITH was serving a sentence of six years and one month for "various offences" committed as a young offender, a Correctional Service of Canada release says.
Her sentence began on October 17, 2003.
Although officials couldn't say how long Ms. SMITH had been at Grand Valley, any young offender serving a federal sentence of two years or more would be transferred to an adult facility once they reach a certain age.
"This incident is extremely disturbing and of serious concern to me," federal Minister of Public Safety Stockwell Day said in statement after the arrests.
"I expect that it will be addressed in an expedient, efficient and sensitive manner, after which appropriate action will be taken."
The Correctional Service of Canada will conduct a separate investigation into Ms. SMITH's death and a coroner's inquest will be convened.
"The Corrections investigation will review the circumstances surrounding the incident, including any issues of compliance with the law, policies and procedures," Mr. Day said.

Police fatally shoot man in Kitchener
By The Canadian Press, Page A7
Kitchener, Ontario -- A man was fleeing with stolen prescription drugs when he was shot and killed Tuesday night by a Waterloo regional police officer.
The death of Trevor GRAHAM, 26, of Kitchener marked just the second time in 30 years that a local officer has killed anyone with a service pistol.
Mr. GRAHAM was leaving a Shoppers Drug Mart store at about 9: 30 p.m. when two uniformed officers responding to a robbery call met him in the front vestibule between two sets of doors.
There was a brief exchange before one of the officers shot Mr. GRAHAM once in the chest.
Frank PHILLIPS, a spokesman for the provincial special investigations unit, couldn't say if Mr. GRAHAM was armed or if there was a struggle before the fatal shooting.
"I don't know that for sure," he said. "We have to find out exactly what led the officer to draw her pistol and fire."
The special investigations unit, which looks into all police incidents in which civilians are killed or seriously injured, has assigned five investigators and three forensic technicians to the case.
The constable who fired the fatal shot, a five-year police veteran, remains on active, front-line duty.
"There's no reason to suspend her," Inspector Bryan LARKIN said. "There's no reason to reassign her."
witnesses: said they saw an officer trying to resuscitate a man lying in the entranceway of the store.

LARSEN, Doctor Donn
Dr. Donn LARSEN was born in Copenhagen, on December 4, 1927, and died of cancer on May 15, 2007, in Vancouver. Donn was an Eagle Scout who prided himself on thinking outside the box long before that term was coined. Donn was passionate about business and negotiations, beginning as a black marketeer and business entrepreneur when just a teenager in occupied Denmark. He was an Industrial Designer and, after immigrating to Canada, operated Donn Larsen Office Interiors Ltd. It was an innovative and successful firm specializing in industrial and furniture design, office space planning and interior construction. Donn was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, London, England, and was appointed as an Honorary Member of the Registered Interior Designer Institute of Alberta in 1983. After retiring from his business, Donn continued consulting in the design field, became a mentor to many aspiring business people, and volunteered his unique and spirited efforts to a number of organizations. Donn was the Danish Consul for Edmonton from 1977-1998, receiving the Order of the Dannebro from Queen Margrethe II of Denmark for his long and dedicated service. Donn was first a member, and then the Chairperson, of the Governing Council of Athabasca University, from 1981-1992. After extensive travel and consultations with other distance learning institutions, Donn received an honorary doctorate in Business Administration from Ramkhamhaeng University in Thailand. He was the first non-Thai to be so honored. Governor-General Adrienne Clarkson honored Donn's commitment and service by awarding him a Grant of Arms in 1999. Donn also received much recognition for his contributions to international humanitarian projects and other public service. A lifelong learner, Donn was always eager to expand and share his knowledge, and promoted innovation in education. Donn was an accomplished pianist, who passionately believed that music was a necessary part of life. Donn was eccentric, brilliant, and didn't suffer fools gladly. Donn and his wife Ella loved entertaining, and hosted many wonderful parties in their Old Glenora home in Edmonton. Donn and Ella also kept an apartment in the West End of Vancouver since 1970, and retired there in 2001. Donn and Ella were married for over 53 years. She was his partner in everything and his number one supporter. Sadly, Ella's illness with Alzheimer's' Disease separated them prematurely. Predeceased by his parents and nephew, Per CHRISTENSEN Jr., Donn is survived by Ella, now a resident of Yaletown House in Vancouver, and many nieces and nephews, Friends and colleagues. He will particularly be missed by niece Dorte PITTAWAY, great-niece Margot PITTAWAY, nephew Paul CHRISTENSEN (Kim ROTHERY,) and companion Marion ROLSTON. No service by request, as Donn would much rather have a party than a funeral. Flowers gratefully declined, but donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. Donn loved telling stories, so please share a story and offer a final Skol!
