According to documents filed in the Hinds County Circuit Court, the family claims that management failed to use appropriate systems for cleaning, operating, monitoring and inspecting the pools. Furthermore, they say that the management was not adequately trained on proper pool operation and maintenance and did not keep adequate documentation related to its maintenance.

E. coli infections can be serious, especially in children and the elderly, and symptoms include stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, and fever. Infection symptoms usually develop within three to four days after exposure. Occasionally, more severe symptoms occur that can be life-threatening, such as the potentially life-threatening condition called hemolytic uremic syndrome, which often develops about a week after symptoms occur and are improving.

Outbreaks in recreational water such as pools, spas, and splash pads occur when the water becomes contaminated by an infected person though fecal contamination and then other swimmers swallow the water. Person-to-person transmission is also possible.

Pool professionals can tell pool users that they can protect themselves and their children from E. coli by following simple but effective guidelines: • Don’t swim or let children swim when sick with diarrhea.

• Don’t swallow the water.

•Take kids on bathroom breaks every hour.

• Check diapers and change them in a bathroom or diaper-changing area – not poolside – to keep germs away from the pool.

• Shower before you get in the water. Rinsing off in the shower for just one minute helps get rid of any germs that might be on your body.
