Youtee Pour ID'd as teenager who died at Grand Rios
We now know the name of the teenager who died at the Grand Rios water park in Brooklyn Park over the weekend. But we still don't know how or why.
Seventeen-year-old Youtee Pour, of Champlin, Minn., was pulled unconscious from the bottom of the pool below the massive Hurricane Plunge ride on Saturday.
Think of jumping into a three-story-high toilet bowl and getting flushed and you have a pretty good idea of what Hurricane Plunge is all about. It's hugely popular, and it sounds like it was mobbed the day Pour died.
Pour was given CPR on the scene, and then taken to North Memorial, where he was pronounced dead. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner released his identity yesterday, but says the investigation into a cause of death continues.
A Facebook page, Youtee Pour R.I.P., has been set up in his honor.
