Demi in shock after man who couldn't swim dies in pool at her LA mansion


Demi Moore has said she is in "absolute shock" following the death of a 21-year-old man in the pool at a Beverly Hills mansion that she owns.

In a statement released through her publicist, the 52-year-old actress said the death at a party hosted by her assistant in her absence was an "unthinkable tragedy".

"I was out of the country travelling to meet my daughters for a birthday celebration when I got the devastating news," Moore said, adding that "my heart goes out to this young man's family and friends".

The victim, Edenil- son Valle, had gone missing for 10 or 15 minutes before his friends found him floating in the deep end of the pool yesterday morning, said coroner's official Lt Fred Corral.

Mr Valle's family and friends told investigators he couldn't swim, Lt Corral said.

Police went to the home on Oak Pass Road in west Los Angeles after receiving a 911 call.

A small crowd of people were standing around the man's body when officers arrived.

Paramedics started CPR, but Mr Valle was pronounced dead at the scene.
