Chemical Leak at Bob L. Burger Recreational Center in Lafayette Leaves 22 Victims Hospitalized

From infants to adults, just about every person has nothing but fond memories of spending an afternoon at the local pool. It is a place we go to relax and play. It is a place we go to build relationships and get away. However, not every trip to the pool has a happy ending.

On March 19, 2016 twenty-two people were hospitalized after swimming in the pool at Bob L. Burger Recreational Center in Lafayette because of a chemical leak in the pool’s chlorination system. Chlorine contains a type of acid which is used to kill bacteria in the pool. The chlorine caused burning eyes, burning throats, coughing and nausea to the people who were exposed to the chlorine. These children and adults alike thought they were going to have a fun and relaxing day in the water, only to realize the majority of their day would be spent in pain in the Emergency Room.
