This was on the paper yesterday. I hope the boy recovers fully. The comment about the salt water pool is kind of weird to me. I know the salt water could be very bad for the lungs (I think any type of water is bad for the lungs) but swimming pool salt levels also be as bad as the ocean for example? A drowning is a drowning regardless but i just wonder why they made that comment. Do we have any paramedics in the house? Is this something you ask a pool owners when you receive a call?June 2, 2007, 9:18PM

Missouri City firefighters rescued a 7-year old boy from a private swimming pool about two miles from the Oyster Creek drowning Saturday.
Mike Youngblood, of the Missouri City Fire Department, said the boy was taken by Life Flight helicopter because the pool is a salt-water pool, which can be "harder" on children's lungs. The boy is in stable condition at Memorial Hermann.
