19 people hospitalized after pool chemical exposure at Thousand Oaks swim school


Nineteen people were treated and hospitalized after being exposed to a pool chemical at a Thousand Oaks swim club Wednesday evening, officials said.

The incident occurred at Daland Swim School in the 100 block of East Wilbur Road around 6:30 p.m.

Swim instructors said it all happened in a matter of seconds during a routine swim practice. The children in the pool started coughing and some complained they couldn’t breathe.

“That’s never happened here before, so for us it was quite a scary moment,” facility owner Leslie Darland-James said.
