PECOS - New information involving a drowning in Pecos over the weekend.

The city has now banned all private parties at the city's pool.

Meanwhile, Police are still trying to figure out what caused a 14-year-old boy to drown on Friday.

His body was found at the bottom of the city's athletic pool during a private party.

The lifeguard performed C.P.R.

He told officers he could smell alcohol along with chlorine from the pool.
