yeah but they said the stunt was swimming under it. so why not just remove it? They are easy enough to remove and put back on . . .


Another reason would be that it's a major pain to remove a pool cover from an Olympic sized swimming pool..


Covers that big are often on mechanical spools, so they likely did not have access to the control box to retract it.


Besides, swimming under water, without risk, is boring.


These were stupid, likely drunk, idiots looking for a thrill.


Now there is one less idiot.


Tragic? Yes.

Avoidable? 100%


Will the owners of the pool be sued. Almost guaranteed. Despite the place likely be locked. It's one of those annoying little liability things that makes most pool owners nervous as all hell.
