Guam police spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao confirms that the bodies of two people, a man and a woman, were pulled from a pond at Guam International Country Club in Dededo this morning.

He said their deaths are being classified as drownings, at this point. However, he said an autopsy would have to be performed to determine the official cause and manner of death.

It’s not clear what led to the drownings. Investigators are working to determine how long they were in the water before they were pulled out.

The couple was scheduled to play a round of golf at GICC this morning, according to Sgt. Tapao. He could not at this time say whether they were local residents or tourists.

Guam Fire spokeswoman Cherika Chargualaf reports that the 911 call reporting a possible drowning was received at 9:51 a.m.

GFD medics were on the scene at 9:57 a.m. and pulled an adult female out of the pond and took her to GRMC. CPR was performed en route, she said.

A few minutes later, medics were advised of the second victim, a man, who was pulled from the pond at 10:10 a.m.

The identities of the two individuals have not been released.
