    Massachusetts Woman Dead in Public Pool for Two Days

    The body of a Massachusetts woman went unnoticed for two days in a Fall River public swimming pool, which remained open to the public and was even visited by health inspectors, generating outrage and calls for an investigation.

    William Flanagan, mayor of Fall River, called Joseph's death "tragic" and said he was demanding an investigation.

    "It has come to my attention that health inspectors from the city visited the pool on Monday and Tuesday and inspected the facilities. I have immediately placed those inspectors on administrative leave," he said, adding the city plans to offer assistance to the state Department of Recreation and Conservation, which manages the pools and is conducting the investigation.

    A photographer for the Herald News visited the pool Tuesday before Joseph's body was discovered and took a photograph of the crowded pool, which only recently opened for the summer.

    This story filled me with disgust:

    First - her friends: didn't care enough about her to recognize she was missing, check in on her later to ask 'hey, why did you leave early without saying anything' - what a ****ty bunch of people, they should be ashamed and forever ridden with guilt.

    Second - the lifeguard, not having a shred of concern

    Third - the maintenance crew - was there one? Anyone clean the pool anytime soon?

    Fourth - the inspectors - they should have shut it down immediately due to unsafe conditions of the cloudy water - though there was nothing that should have hinted to her body being in the pool while they were there.

    The only one who did the right thing in this entire situation was the boy - poor thing.

    I read this yesterday..... I dunno.....it just seems to me that there has to be more to this story. A pool where kids don't swim to the bottom? This womans kids didn't know she wasn't at home?

    She takes the neighbor kid to the pool but not her own kids?

    If you're in a pool, swimming, and bump into someone - do you think they're dead or just think they're swimming, too?

    I'd assume they were swimming, too, and not think anything else of it.

    Dead body lies unnoticed in busy US pool for days

    How the hell...? I'm boggled that so many people could be so oblivious.

    Massachusetts officials have closed a busy public swimming pool after a woman's dead body went unnoticed in the water for two days as people continued to swim, the Boston Globe reported Friday.

    Re: Massachusetts Woman Dead in Public Pool for Two Days

    This is one of the weirdest things I ever heard. How could someone be dead in a pool for days and no one know it? They do maintenance on the pool, right? Sure they treat it and stuff at the end of the day, and at least look at it at the beginning of the day? Something is strange here. How could they not know someone was in the pool dead?? It's not a flipping swamp, it's a swimming pool...

    The last sentence in the original link baffles me.

    What - that they closed the pools?

    Or the photographer part in my OP? I didn't mean to add that sentence in - I think I was trying to snag a different line and messed up.
