Why can't people just squirt themselves with the hose if they want to cool or for free or lay in the bathtub in cool water...all the free cool water you want..Things cost money to maintain...There is already enough free stuff we PAY for...Prayers go out to this man's family...He is a true hero for saving his niece and will always be remembered as one...

I agree pools should be open with maybe a lower charge to get in? Also, no offense to this victim but they provide ares where there are lifeguards present. People please swim in these designated areas. Your family/friends may be able to swim but helping someone who is drowning is not that simple, plus family/friends tend to panic.
God Bless the families involved.
