A Dartmouth student who died at a YMCA in Sarasota, Fla. went into distress after trying to swim four laps underwater without taking a breath, Florida officials said in a report on Monday.
Tate Ramsden, 21, had apparently already swum about 4,000 yards before attempting the four-lap swim without breathing, the Associated Press reports. Ramsden was at the pool with his uncle, sister and cousin, and after the latter two saw he had stopped moving underwater, they alerted lifeguards who pulled him out and attempted to revive him. An autopsy is expected to determine the cause of death.
The Nashville native swam for his college’s team as a freshman and sophomore, and was on track to graduate in 2017.
