Criminal complaint applications submitted in weekend incident where 17-year-old MA teen was pulled from pool



In an update from a previous story, police have filed a criminal complaint after a teen was left in critical condition after nearly drowning this past weekend.

According to Dedham Police, at approximately 12:30 a.m., Sunday, the Dedham Emergency 911 Center received multiple 911 calls reporting an unresponsive male related to a possible drowning incident. The incident took place in a backyard of 36 Netta Road which includes an in-ground pool.

Upon arrival, officers observed bystanders performing CPR on the victim. The victim has been identified by friends and family as 17-year-old Alonzo Polk from Dedham.

First Responders took over care and rendered aid to Polk. The victim was subsequently transported to a Boston hospital by Fallon Ambulance and was last reported to be in critical condition.

Responding officers learned a graduation party was taking place at the location of the incident.

The investigation conducted by members of the Dedham Police Department into the circumstances leading to Polk becoming submerged in the water has resulted in criminal complaint applications being submitted to the Dedham District Court.

Misdemeanor charges presented to the Court include furnishing alcohol to persons under 21 and reckless endangerment to a child.

Police say that the names of individuals and details submitted to the Dedham District Court will not be made public until the Court makes a determination of probable cause and conducts an arraignment.

A GoFundMe page was created for the family and over $10,000 has been raised as of this writing.
