N. Babylon father drowns in family pool

Police say a North Babylon father drowned while possibly closing his pool for the season. 



According to police, Thomas Romanello's wife and daughter found the man unresponsive in their above ground pool just after 6:30 p.m. last night. 



A neighbor helped pull the 56-year-old from the pool on Dollar Drive and did CPR, but Romanello died a short time later. 



Detectives are investigating whether Romanello had a medical event before the drowning.
