Girl, 9, gets pneumonia after choking on swimming pool water Kids like to play in swimming pools during summer vacation A 9-year-old girl surnamed Liao went to a Taichung swimming pool and played on the water slide last month Are you ok? Later that day, the little girl developed symptoms including a severe cough, chest pain, and fever as high as 40 degrees Celsius Parents thought she had a cold or sunstroke After going to the doctor, it was confirmed she had aspiration pneumonitis Dr. Wu [deputy director of the pediatrics department at Buddhist Tzu Chi General Hospital]: Her lungs were infected with aspiration pneumonitis This whole area has been infected And it is considered to be a very serious infection Liao checked into the hospital for 10 days She was cured by antibiotics injections Dr. Wu: Swimming pool water is definitely dirtier than drinking water. It is not clean for sure The bacteria that grows in this environment is also more complex. Therefore, she needs stronger medicine Empyema, pneumothorax, or acute respiratory distress syndrome could occur if not given proper treatments It could even result in sepsis

    That's what I was wondering as I've never heard of that sort of thing in the US.

    It is rare anywhere. I am guessing that the little girl has a weak immune system or the pool had some sort of problem. It could be too little chlorine or bad water circulation.
