Pool Accident

In the Startribune I found a strange story of a 6-year-old girl having her intestine sucked out by a swimming pool suction drain. Abigail Taylor was swimming in a pool at the Minneapolis Golf Club in St. Louis Park when she had several feet of her intestine pulled out.

Abigail's parents, Scott and Kathryn Taylor sought legal advice from their attorney Robert Bennett immediately. Bennett gave a statement to the media about Abigail's condition, she was taken to the Children's hospital in Minneapolis. Lawmakers Klobuchar and Ramstad are demanding that laws are placved that require pools to have improved drains.

The Pioneer Press stated in its article that Abigail had to have the portion of her intestinal tract that was pulled out removed. The damage to her intestians will more then likelly be life changing for the young girl, who will probably have to be feed through a tub for the rest of her life.

This isnt the first time that an accident like this has taken place, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commision has listerd a number of different cases.
