CNN Star DEAD In Freak Accident
(WatchDogReport.org) – Nearly 4,000 people lose their lives by drowning every year in the United States. The summer months are the most deadly because of the sheer number of people who are trying to cool down. A CNN contributor has been added to that list of statistics.
On Sunday, September 11, at about 2 p.m., beachgoers at Gould’s Inlet in Georgia called first responders to alert them to two swimmers in distress. Attorney Page Pate, 55, was with his family when he and his adolescent son were both swept out into a rip current. His son was able to swim back to safety, but he didn’t make it.
Pate was a legal analyst who regularly contributed to the cable news network. He worked as a trial lawyer for more than 25 years. CNN host Poppy Harlow posted a tribute to her friend, saying she was thinking about his wife, Elizabeth, their two sons, and the rest of his family.
In memory of our friend and CNN contributor Page Pate. May his memory be a blessing. Thinking of his wife Elizabeth, his sons Chatham and Asher, his parents Robert and Mary Elizabeth, and his brother Lane. https://t.co/UrQcYD9fZX

The accident happened near the 55-year-old’s beach house. Glynn County Fire-Rescue acting Chief Vinnie DiCristofalo told CNN Pate’s son was okay physically. When rescue workers arrived on the scene, they were able to pull the lawyer’s body out of the water, but doctors pronounced him dead at the hospital.
