Management of the Aura Leisure Centre have issued an apology for a statement in which they inaccurately reported that all children affected by an incident yesterday had been discharged from hospital.
Two children were kept in Letterkenny University Hospital overnight.
Pool water contained in the filtration system leaked back into the pool, management say.
Some children who were swimming in the pool at the time fell ill and six presented to LUH, with at least two kept in for further assessment.
“In speaking this morning with the parents of the children who were brought to the regional hospital yesterday, we learned that, contrary to what we had been advised by the hospital yesterday afternoon, two children were in fact retained for observation overnight,” the Aura management said this morning.
“We deeply regret the misleading statement yesterday that said all the children had been discharged, and any upset caused to the parents and children involved.
“ The safety and wellbeing of the children in question is of our utmost concern. We will endeavour to maintain close contact with those involved throughout the day.”Tags:
