Riddle Number Ten

Henry, manager of the Dead Sea Resort, was lounging in his room when he got a phone call from an angry customer. "My little son was swimming in your Dead Sea and drowned! I was watching him, but when I looked away for a second, he was gone! He had managed to get into the sea while my back was turned. I tried to get to him, but I was too late. He sunk right under and drowned! Unless you can pay us in return for taking our son's life, I'll sue you! There was no lifeguard, and my son and I were the only people there. Come down here right now, while I'm still alone, and pay me some money!"
Henry immediately hung up and called the police. How did he know that the "angry customer" was lying?

You can't drowned in the dead sea due to the salt levels you just float. Is that right?

The customer said 'we're still alone' and 'pay us' so there was someone else there.

is it just as simple as being that the guy knew that there were lifeguards and people out there?
MysticMedievalSamuraiPrincess
No, good guess though!

He said that his son was swimming, and then after that he was kinda explaining how/why.. like "My son drowned and this is how it happened:...."

Is it because the customer said "Swimming in the dead sea" Then says how he/she looked away and said their son had got into the sea?
