Tommy Lee: boy was left alone

A 911 call made public Monday quotes drummer Tommy Lee as saying that the 4-year-old old boy who drowned in his pool Saturday had been left alone “for a minute,” Reuters reports. “There’s a big pool party here and no one was paying attention for a minute,” Lee reportedly said on the tape. The operator then asked whether Daniel Karven Veres’ chest or stomach was rising and Lee offered, “I don’t know–everyone is pressing in on him.” After being asked to prevent the partygoers from closing in, Lee said in an exasperated tone of voice, “I know, there’s a bunch of (expletive) people all doing their thing so I don’t know what the (expletive) to do. OK.” The Los Angeles Police Department has ruled the drowning at Lee’s Malibu, Calif., home as an accident.
