Chandler, AZ (October 4, 2019) – A woman was hospitalized after she was found in a residential pool in Chandler.
According to officials from the Chandler Fire Department, the woman, believed to be in her 40s, was found face down in the pool Thursday evening. The swimming pool is located in a neighborhood southeast of Queen Creek Road and Alma School Road.
The woman was transported to the hospital via ambulance after Chandler fire officials provided care at the scene. No further details about the women’s identity or current condition were immediately available. At this time, it is unclear who owns the pool.
Officers from the Chandler Police Department are investigating.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and her family at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
The Phoenix area ranks number one in the country when it comes to residential pool ownership. Because of the warm, dry weather in Arizona, most residents have their own pools. And statistically, those who live near water or have exposure to pools are more likely to experience drowning that results in injury or death.
Drowning accidents can mean tragic, unforeseen circumstances for victims and their families. But those affected by these unfortunate incidents can contact a personal injury lawyer, especially when these drowning accidents occur due to the negligence of other parties.
