Its a pool with seawater? why do they have to pump out water?
The water comes and goes over the edge anyways.

Amazing people survive such accidents :O :)

it really sucks to be stuck in a pipe with water, i was once in a pool with a tube slide, and some kids were just holding everyone up. i was stuck there for a long time.

Yeah thought I would put this up. One of my dad's writing buddies. I would be suing the council if I was him, at least for medical expenses.

#15 I am not sure what you mean? He is 67 years old, so maybe show a little respect. He is also a successful author so not sure how you are seeing him as being retarded. He was well in his rights to swim in the local pool and the council should of checked for swimmers first.
I agree with #14. Maybe it was the council worker's first day.
