Kelly Pavlik’s brother injured during party

Kelly Pavlik house in Canfield Township, Ohio


CANFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – Mahoning County Sheriff’s detectives believe an incident that left the brother of one-time boxer Kelly Pavlik in the hospital was an accident where alcohol may have played a role.

Firefighters and sheriff’s deputies were sent to Pavlik’s home in Canfield Township Friday night after dispatchers received a call of a man who was unresponsive.

“Got him out of the pool, next thing you know, he just kinda dropped. And now he is non-responsive. I don’t know what the hell is going on with him,” a 911 caller stated.

The caller didn’t seem afraid to admit he and the others had been having a good time.

“All we were doing was drinking here, you know, a little bit of beer, a little bit of alcohol, partying. That’s it, that’s it,” the caller said.

At one point, Kelly Pavlik got on the line and was asked if his brother was still breathing.

“He is active, but I can’t give you a breathing test, I don’t have anything on me to give you a breathing test,” Pavlik said.

Minutes later, paramedics arrived and started working on the victim while deputies tried to learn what happened.
