A few cool things here. It's an above ground pool (or partially buried) so bonus points for that. They picked a pool that at least provided some opportunity to still breath up near the roof. And of course, the liner is still in tact!

I'm waiting for the pool owner to find the forum to ask what the appropriate SLAM level is for a pool with 40CYA and a car inside.

Had that happen when I was about 10 years old... (holy crapola, 30 years ago). We were swimming in a neighbors inground pool and got out after being in for a couple hours. We were standing on the patio when a loud crash was heard. A large car came through the back cinderblock wall which separated the back yard from the rear parking lot of a strip mall. Memory is foggy, but I kinda remember them saying that the dad was adding coolant to the car or something and left the engine running with a young kid in the front seat. The kid put it in drive and the rest was on the news later that night. Thankfully nobody was hurt.
