Health department finds nothing wrong at Kenmore pool
Seattle-King County Health Department inspectors found nothing wrong at the Kenmore swimming pool where three synchronized swimmers fainted and sank.
A department spokeswoman, Hilary Karasz (KAIR'-us), says a team conducted a preliminary investigation today that included the water and air quality and mechanical systems at the pool at St. Edward's State Park.
She says nothing is out of the ordinary. Chlorine levels are normal and water quality logs show nothing unusual. There is no health threat at the pool.
Karasz says the investigation will continue with investigators interviewing everyone involved.
Coaches and a lifeguard rescued the girls - ages 11, 12 and 13 - yesterday and they spent a night under hospital care as a precaution.
