Police have released the names of three people who drowned in a swimming pool at a North Carolina apartment complex.

Durham police on Wednesday said the victims were 21-year-old Luis Enrique Delgado-Romero, 16-year-old Brian Manuel Benites and 15-year-old Abril Yulianan Flores-Ojeda.

Police say none of them lived at the apartment complex. The pool was closed at 3 a.m. Tuesday when they were found.

Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said all three people drowned. She said there was no sign of foul play.

The three were pronounced dead at Duke University Hospital.

A city inspector said the pool was fine when it was checked earlier this month.
