Charges coming after Fall River woman drowned in public pool

Two state employees are facing criminal charges after opening a Fall River swimming pool after a woman drowned in it. The Fall River woman drowned on June 26 but her body was not discovered until June 28, 2011.

Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter concluded that the "investigation revealed a systemic failure in the pool's operation, but no actions of one individual directly related to the woman's death were proven to be reckless or wanton, and no charges would be filed." Sutter did say, however, that his office would pursue charges in relation to the decision to keep the pool open despite the unhealthy conditions.

According to reports, the pool's water was murky and cloudy from the time the pool opened for the season until June 28th, when the body was discovered. The investigation concluded that the managers of the pool broke the law then they opened the pool on June 27and 28, by recklessly endangering children and swimmers.
