Rock Hill woman drowns in private pool

A Rock Hill woman drowned in a private pool Saturday evening, authorities say.

Officials received a report about a woman dead in a pool on Lake Wylie Drive, which borders the lake at Ebenezer Park, at about 11 p.m., said York County Coroner Sabrina Gast.

Tonya McRorie, 44, was pronounced dead on the scene, Gast said. She lived at 3587 Mount Gallant Road.

Other people were using the pool Saturday night, Gast said, adding that the homeowner was not home at the time. The York County Sheriff’s Office also is investigating.

Gast said an autopsy on McRorie will not be performed until Monday. (Rock Hill) Herald
