Hopefully the police catches the guy before the girl or anybody else gets hurt or killed. I'm glad the girl wasn't hurt but she also doesn't need to be working by herself. Maybe this will open up the eyes of the owner and show him to put 2 people to the job

Remember the "Buddy System"? Having two workers there could have deterred this crime all together. A perpertrator is less likely to attack if out numbered. Anything else could have happened, an illness, seizure, blackout, or some freak accident. Having two workers would at least have someone else there to call 911 if needed. I would never allow my teen to work all alone at a pool. The owner needs to pay one more hourly rate or it could end up costing her dearly and possibly the life of a "single" worker.

This was a 19yr old adult... I worked by myself at a dry cleaners when I was 17. Anything could happen to anyone who is by themselves. Age has nothing to do with it.

Seriously ppl....I have NEVER heard of a employer NOT having 2 ppl on staff at a time, not just for safety issues but to protect themselves from negligence suits. Not to mention that it's just stupid these days to think ANYWHERE is safe. No one and no place is exempt from crime....especially upper class neighborhoods.

I guess you don't get out at night. Go to a gas station at 3am and see how many people are working. I'm not sure how the business would be negligent. If you don't want to work by yourself, don't take the job!

What is the age cut off for working alone? Would people be saying this if it had been a male 19 year old grabbed by another male?
