Blood from diving accident forces egress at Eagle Park Pool.

Posted by on August 8, 2009

Person cutting his head going off the diving board at Eagle Park forced egress of everyone out of the pool and shutdown until the next day. Jen noticed this guy sitting on chair and lifeguards attending to him with fluid dripping down his neck which turned out to be blood. He was conscious when the ambulance took him away, but lifeguards had to do full wipedown with bleach of all areas contaminated with blood. Wonder what the general protocol for a public pool is when blood has contaminated the waters. Do they pump in more chlorine than usual for awhile and then bring chlorine levels back to normal in the system? What if one drop of blood full of ebola hit a public pool…
