D.C. studying pool safety after child's death
D.C. Council officials approved emergency legislation Tuesday to look into whether city pools have appropriate safety measures in place, Fox 5 reports.
The legislation, introduced by Council member Harry Thomas (Ward 5), calls for a review of the number of lifeguards at pools and the feasibility of installing an automated drowning detection system, among other things.
The measures comes after 6-year-old Yiana-Michelle Ballard was found unconscious at the Turkey Thicket Recreation Center pool in Northeast. She was later pronounced dead at Children's National Medical Center.
