San Ramon Woman Drowns In Menlo Park Hotel Jacuzzi

MENLO PARK (CBS SF) - A 42-year-old San Ramon woman drowned in a hotel Jacuzzi in Menlo Park over the weekend, a police spokeswoman said Monday.

Paramedics responded to a report of a possible drowning at the Best Western Riviera Motor Lodge Hotel at 15 El Camino Real at about 5:35 a.m. Saturday, Menlo Park police spokeswoman Nicole Acker said.

The victim had been found unresponsive in the Jacuzzi by her friend, who contacted hotel management.

Hotel staff was performing CPR on the victim when paramedics arrived.

The victim, who was later identified as Keri Michelle Long, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A preliminary investigation indicated that there were no signs of foul play, and that Long's death appeared to be accidental, Acker said.

Police were awaiting the results of toxicology results from the San Mateo County coroner's office, which could take about two weeks, Acker said.
