McNeal and the other lifeguard dove in and started CPR.
They called the Oregon State Police.
A dive team eventually reached the victim and took him to the hospital, Zacharie McNeil recalled.
He was taken to Oregon State Hospital in Bend where he died.
The Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office ruled his death a homicide.
The other man, who wasn’t named, has not been identified.
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality released a statement saying the man was found at the bottom of the pool with what appeared to be blunt force trauma.
The agency said he was a registered diver and was working on a dive for his father.
