Mitchell Aquatic Club's pool collapses, drains
Published 03/01/2010, The Daily Republic
The new above-ground swimming pool that is serving as the headquarters of the Mitchell Aquatic Club on Sunday suffered what the coach calls a “catastrophic structural failure” and drained thousands of gallons of water out the front door and into at least one nearby business.
Chuck Baechler, MAC head coach, locked up the team’s new home on North Main Street after completing practice at 5:45 p.m., Sunday. At 6:15 p.m., he got a phone call saying water was shooting out the front door.
