Man dies following pool accident

A young man has died, nearly a week after suffering a spinal cord injury at a Southern Kentucky pool.

The Fayette County coroner says 22-year old Thomas Burris slipped and fell into a pool in Somerset on August 15th, and hit his head on the bottom.

He was flown to UK hospital for treatment of a broken neck, but he passed away last night.

The coroner says Burris died from complications after a surgery.
