"A tragedy occurred at Knoebels Crystal Pool early in the afternoon of July 6th. A young boy struck his head while jumping into the pool. Upon being rescued, guards immediately began CPR. He was then transported by ambulance to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville. We are deeply saddened to report that the child has passed away. Please join the Knoebel families in placing the childs family and friends in your prayers."
This hits pretty close to home for me. I just got home from a 5 night stay at the campground and had my 5 yo twins at the pool yesterday. I am stunned.
What a terrible event for this young child, the family, and the staff that tried to help him. Very classy of Knoebels to disable their website and post this,
Wow. Since it was a young boy, I can't imagine he was diving, so maybe he somehow hit his head on the ground where he jumped from?
Maybe he attempted to do a flip into the pool? Kid's love to try to do flips.
