HIALEAH, Fla. -Newly released surveillance video shows the moments when three children were shocked while swimming in the pool at a condominium complex. It happened on April 27 at the Palms West Condominiums at 1950 W. 56th St. The video shows several people, mostly children, swimming in the shallow end of the pool. One little girl makes her way over the metal hand rail and when she touches it, her head goes back and she freezes. Her muscles were paralyzed by electricity and she was unable to let go.
Fortunately there was a man on the steps just a few feet away. He realized something was wrong and tried to grab the child and was briefly shocked too, but was eventually able to yank the girl out of the water. Read more:
