Saf-T-Swim in New Cassel evacuated due to strong chlorine fumes
Forty-four children and their instructors were taken to the Nassau University Medical Center Tuesday after they were overcome by chlorine fumes. The Saf-T-Swim in New Cassel was evacuated after children, ranging in age from 6 to 11, complained of stomachaches and had trouble breathing. The children and their instructors were treated and released. Hazmat crews and Westbury fire officials were called to the building, located off Main Street, to investigate. They say they found nothing wrong with the pool?s chlorinating system and will continue their investigation.
