Nishuane Pool manager Gerald Silvera said, “Campers were here swimming and a child swallowed too much water and vomited a little. We handled it as if it were a full vomit situation. The child is fine, but we needed to clean the pool thoroughly and then test the water levels.”

The incident occurred before noon today. The child was fine and no medical attention was needed. The pool was scheduled to open to the public at 1 p.m. and will be delayed by an hour to 2 p.m. to clean the pool. Whenever vomiting situations occur, pool officials take precautions to thoroughly clean the pool before other swimmers are allowed back in.  All other town pools will open at 1 p.m., as scheduled.

Questions can be directed to the Montclair Department of Recreation & Cultural Affairs at 973-509-4915
