DJ KSWIFT (1979 - 2008)

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that a popular area DJ by the name of K-Swift died early this morning after a pool accident at her home. She was only 29 years old. While a definite cause of death hasn’t been determined, an autopsy is planned.

According to a preliminary police investigation, Khia “K-Swift” Edgerton, who lived in the 4300 block of Arizona Ave. in Northeast Baltimore, had been hosting a party at her house through Sunday evening and into early this morning. Police investigators believe she may have been drinking, said agent Donny Moses, a Baltimore police spokesman.

During the party early this morning, she jumped into her above-ground pool with several other people, but didn’t resurface. About six or seven other people were in the pool, which was about 4 or 5 feet deep, during the time she had jumped in. After an unspecified period of time, her friends pulled her onto a metal-frame deck that adjoined the pool, and called 911.

When paramedics arrived, they discovered that Edgerton was breathing “very shallow and her pulse was weak,” Moses said. She was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital where she was pronounced dead soon after her arrival.
