Lake Jackson, TX -11 Injured at Outdoor Pool in Lake Jackson
Lake Jackson, TX (August 3, 2019) On the 2nd of August, an accident happened at an outdoor pool in Lake Jackson. The facility was hosting a movie event when a chlorine leak suddenly occurred. Unfortunately, eleven children were swimming in the pool at the time of the leak.
When the paramedics and other city officials arrived at the scene, they found all eleven children injured. The paramedics rushed six of them to a nearby hospital, and the other five were taken to hospitals by their parents. Fortunately, all of them have been confirmed to be in stable condition.
Authorities are thoroughly investigating the accident to determine what caused the leak. The pool will be closed until further notice.
Our thoughts are with the eleven injured children and their families at this time.
Premise Liability in Texas
When owners of public facilities allow access to the public, they’re responsible for ensuring the safety of all people in their facility. They’re supposed to do thorough inspections to make sure the area will not be hazardous to visitors. When owners fail to do so, they are committing negligence and putting others in danger of sustaining serious injuries or worse. Therefore, it’s important for injured victims to seek help from a premise liability attorney.
