Two Men Shocked In Florence Swimming Pool

FLORENCE, Ala. - Two men are being treated for electrical shock they suffered in a swimming pool early this afternoon.

Florence Police say they were called to a home on the 100 block of Augusta Street, shortly before 1:00PM

Witnesses tell police that a male in his 60s was found in the swimming pool by his son, who jumped into the pool in an attempt to save his father, who appeared to being shocked while in the water. As the son was removing his father from the water, he  too, succumbed to the electrical current and became unresponsive.

CPR was started and medical personnel were able to resuscitate both men. They were then transported to the local hospital's acute care unit. 

Police, along with Florence Building and Electricity department officials, confirm that an electrical current was found in the swimming pool, but the nature of the current remains under investigation.

The victims' condition is unknown.

Florence Police say they do not believe the incident is critical in nature but will continue to work with the family and city officials to determine the cause of the electrical current in the pool at the time of the incident.

The names and exact ages of the victims are not available at this time. This is still an active investigation.
