Teen dies after being sucked into pool pump

Nathan Clark, 14, died after lifting a grille in a pool at a Thai water park in an attempt to retrieve his goggles.

He was sucked into the pool’s pumping system and it took 30 minutes for pool engineers to check the pump room.

When they did, Nathan’s body slid into view of the engineers and his horrified father, who claims lifeguards ignored his pleas for help.

This sorta stuff shouldn’t happen.

Regardless of the boy’s actions, he shouldn’t have paid the price of his stupidity with his life – in my humble opinion, that’s just far too high a price to pay.

Shame on the guards, and rightly so. Would it have killed them to waste a precious minute to check?
