Funeral arrangements have been finalized for Michael Ross, who drowned in a local hotel swimming pool on Monday night.

Ross, 12, will be laid to rest on Saturday, July 28 in his hometown of Fairfield. Funeral services are scheduled for 3:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Fairfield located at 303 S. Mount Street.

The seventh-grader was found Monday night, unresponsive in a pool at the Plaza Hotel in College Station. Bystanders performed CPR until emergency responders arrived. He was later pronounced dead at St. Joseph Regional Health Center.

Ross was attending the Missionary Baptist General Convention of Texas with his family and other delegates from throughout the state. College Station Police officials say the incident appears to have be an accidental drowning but they are still interviewing witnesses.
