This case involves a thirteen-year-old boy who was swimming in a public pool. There were nine lifeguards around the pool. The boy began having trouble staying afloat, but none of the lifeguards noticed him struggling in the water. The boy was underwater for a long period of time before a family friend noticed him and tried to rescue him. There were no flotation devices in the vicinity. The friend was unable to rescue the boy so he told the boy’s mother and she alerted the lifeguards. The pool manager only ordered the lifeguards to look for the boy around the pool and did not order them to go into the water and try to find the boy. The boy was underwater for approximately 10 minutes before the lifeguards pulled him from the pool. The boy died from staying underwater so long. The boy’s parents brought a wrongful death lawsuit against the city for negligent supervision of the pool and claimed that the lifeguards were negligent in not responding properly to the boy’s drowning.
