Shortage of lifeguards closes Chicopee pool

Posted: Updated:
CHICOPEE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

A shortage of lifeguards forced Chicopee High School to close its indoor pool today.

Until it reopens, other locations are expected to draw a larger crowd than normal.

All other lifeguards and pool staff have spent extra time reviewing protocol to ensure public safety.

A man drowned this week at one of the city's public pools.

Investigators are still looking into the death but reports show it was not due to negligence by pool staff.
