Tommy Lee: boy was left alone

Jun 19, 2001 | 2:19pm EDT

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.
