Chlorine problem at pool sends several to hospital

Posted: July 01, 2012

An estimated eight people were hospitalized Saturday after a chlorination pump failure at Green Fields Swim Club in West Deptford caused chlorine vapors to be discharged into the air at the facility, said manager Dean Cooney. One of the club's three outdoor pools was shut for the rest of the day after the incident, which was reported to Gloucester County emergency dispatchers about 3:15 p.m. Four ambulances were sent to the scene on what was one of the hottest days of the year. - Maria Panaritis
