County Reviewing Kiddie Pool Incident
By Lenora Moody
The county is reviewing an incident in which a young child nearly drowned at the Champion Park Kiddie Pool in Rosman on Monday.
According to County Manager Artie Wilson, the "kiddie pool" does not have a lifeguard but requires a parent or guardian to sign a release form to supervise their child "at all times."
"We are reviewing the situation but will continue to operate as usual and will make changes to our policy if we believe they are needed," Wilson said.
The boy, whose name has not been released, accidentally fell in the 2-foot-deep pool around 3:30 p.m.
