Ever read something in the news that’s so disgusting you nearly go into convulsions while your “ick” meter goes tilt?
Well, this one did it for me. A story about a woman drowning in a public pool and nobody noticed for two days.
You heard that right. People continued to swim in the pool and nobody, not swimmers or lifeguards, noticed that there was something (someone) floating lifelessly in the pool. Decomposing.
If I found out that I had been swimming in a pool with a decomposing body, I’d likely spend the next three days fully immersed in a bath full of jet fuel.
Something was said about the water being cloudy. Well, if a public pool’s water is that cloudy, it needs to be shut down and cleaned or shock-treated. Call that one a no-brainer.
Even bigger mystery: she apparently was swimming with a little kid and his family, went down a slide together and collided with each other, and never surfaced.
Didn’t the kid notice his adult swim partner missing? Didn’t the parents? Did ANYONE raise the question of where did this woman go?
Tragic. And shocking, that nobody noticed anything was amiss.
And just… ewwwww.
