4 people drown in public park
"The 9-foot-deep garden pool where three children and a father drowned this week was originally designed to be 3 feet deep, a city official said, and an extensive safety review was planned. Richard Zavala, parks and community services director, said the city will look into the discrepancy in the water depth and also evaluate whether an emergency pump shut-off valve should be closer to the pool. Powerful suction apparently pulled the four victims to the bottom of the murky green pool at the Fort Worth Water Gardens... Police said the victims had obeyed signs warning against swimming in the fountains, waterfalls and pools. 'This was not the result of someone violating the law and going swimming. This looks as though it was an accident,' Police Chief Ralph Mendoza said."
