Pool Company Maybe to Blame in Drowning

A swimming pool company president has been charged with second degree murder for the drowning death of a 6-year-old child.

Police claim that those safety devices would have prevented the accident. In that past 23 years, more than 150 people have been injured or died as a result of pool drain entrapments. Read more here.
