A Houma man working for a company involved in the cleanup of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill died in a swimming pool at a Gretna hotel on Wednesday
Alvin Caldwell, 45, was found dead in the swimming pool at the Clarion Hotel at 100 West Bank Expressway shortly after 1 a.m., said Gretna Police
Chief Arthur Lawson. Caldwell's death has been ruled an accidental drowning by the Jefferson Parish coroner's office.
Lawson said witnesses told police that Caldwell, who was staying at the hotel for work, was drinking in the hotel lounge with several other
individuals when they all decided to go swimming in the hotel pool. After swimming for an undetermined amount of time, everyone left Caldwell in the
pool alone, Lawson said. A short time later, someone was walking by the pool when they noticed Caldwell's body floating and called police. Caldwell
was taken to Oschner West Bank hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Several of Caldwell's relatives, who live in Raceland, said they that he was working in the area for a company they knew only as "E and E." An
official at the Deepwater Horizon Unified Command Joint Information Center said Thursday afternoon that she did not have the name of the subcontractor
that Caldwell worked for.
Stephanie Caldwell, the victim's sister-in-law, said he was hired in Houma, and she didn't know how long he had been working in Gretna. She said the
family is still trying to find out more.
She said the victim was well-liked. "He was a nice guy," she said.
