Toddler found Tuesday in Hudson pool dies at hospital


Toddler found Tuesday in pool dies at hospital

A toddler who was found in a swimming pool earlier this week has died, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Authorities say Geovani Carrillo slipped out a doggy door Tuesday evening into the back yard of the home at 7013 Country Club Drive in Country Club Estates. Family members found him floating face-down in the pool, the report said. The boy, who had his first birthday Sunday and had just learned to walk, was taken to All Children's Hospital. He was pronounced dead at 5:46 a.m. Wednesday, said Kevin Doll, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office. The Sheriff's Office has classified the incident as an accident.


Hudson woman killed in crash

A Hudson woman died Tuesday night after she lost control of her motorcycle and hit a utility pole. Police said Tiffany Ann Tribou, 21, was riding a 2009 Suzuki GSX-R600 motorcycle west on E Busch Boulevard when she went off the road and hit a pole at N Elmer Street about 11:56 p.m., police said. Tribou died at the scene. She was wearing a helmet.


Cleanup removes 18.86 tons of trash

This year's Coastal Cleanup removed 18.86 tons of trash and debris from Pasco County, almost 1.5 tons more than last year. The event drew 1,478 volunteers, roughly the same number as last year, Pasco recycling coordinator Jennifer Seney said. "I'm very pleased at the turnout and the tonnage because every ounce of trash that comes off the ground keeps pollution out of our water and off our coast," said Seney, who organized the Sept. 18 event. Land O'Lakes had a huge team of more than 400 volunteers. Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park had more than 100 volunteers, as did San Antonio and the Lacoochee-Trilby area. Altogether 28 teams fanned out across the county to collect trash.


Team's carwash will help out coach

The Arsenal youth soccer team will have a carwash from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the 7-Eleven at State Road 54 and U.S. 41 to benefit coach Ron Cox, who recently had surgery for cancer. Cox has volunteered more than 3,000 hours in 11 years as a coach. All donations will be given to the family. Cox, who is self-employed, has been unable to work because of his illness.


A racially motivated fight in April that led to the arrest of two adults and a teenager occurred on Madison Street in New Port Richey, near Gulf High School. A story Thursday was unclear on the location of the brawl.
