A person has died following a medical event at the Manurewa Pool and Leisure Centre in south Auckland.
Emergency services were called to the centre on Sykes Rd just after 7am.
A police spokesman confirmed the sudden death and said it was believed to have been the result of a medical event.
A post on the centre’s Facebook page said it would be closed until further notice due to “unforeseen circumstances”.
A St John Ambulance spokesman said it sent two ambulances and a rapid response vehicle to the scene, but referred further queries to police.
Auckland Council, which runs the centre, has been approached for comment.
