Earlier this month, a Jefferson High School teacher and student were injured in a swimming pool accident at the high school campus. According to reports, a 17-year old student was looking through the pool's underwater observation window during a P.E. class when it suddenly broke. The student was subsequently pulled through the window from the force of the water and into a mechanical room. The school's physical education teacher jumped in the pool to try and grab the student, but was also pulled into the mechanical room.
The P.E. teacher mostly suffered minor cuts and bruises from being pulled through the broken glass window. However, the student had to be taken to University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison in a helicopter for unknown injuries. Investigators are looking at the pool to try to figure out how and why the window broke and to determine if anyone should be held liable for the teacher and student's injuries.
