Swingers party ends in tragic death
A swinging party in one of the most affluent areas of the UK ended in tragedy on Friday night as a 35-year-old was pulled dead from a swimming pool.
Police have confirmed that the randy party guest "got into difficulties while in the pool with six others" and was pulled out of the water and given first aid by the mansion’s owner but died at the scene.
The James Bond themed swingers event was the latest to be staged at a mansion in the lefty Hertfordshire village of Radlett, which is often rated among the most desirable places to live in the UK.
“Police were called to a social gathering at Radlett at 12.45am on Saturday 28th March," confirmed Hertfordshire police.
“When we attended we found a man had died at the scene. An investigation is under way into the death and a postmortem will be held next week.”
Richard Stanley, 66, who runs the business which hosts the parties, along with his partner Janet Harrison, 58 (pictured above), said in quotes appearing in the Daily Mirror: “Everyone is very shocked including me.
“I heard somebody yell that there was someone lying at the bottom of our pool. There were about a dozen people there at the time and about six in the water. I dived in and pulled the man out.
“There was a nurse present too and we gave him first aid. I didn’t stop CPR until the ambulance crew turned up but sadly he was declared dead at the scene.
"We don’t know whether it was a heart attack - I gather a postmortem is being held this week to find out what happened.
