Indy pool to remain closed until problem found

An Indianapolis parks spokeswoman says the
pool where a chemical reaction sickened 71 people will remain
closed until authorities determine what went wrong.

Spokeswoman Jennifer Pittman tells The Indianapolis Star ( ) she doesn't know when the Garfield Park pool will reopen. She says officials are hesitant to do anything with the pool until they know what caused a chemical reaction there on Thursday. No mechanical problems were found at the pool.

Most of those stricken were children. Victims complained of nausea, breathing problems and watery eyes.

Pittman says parents and park visitors are concerned about what's wrong with the pool. City officials have said other city pools will be checked to ensure they aren't susceptible to similar problems.
