Fargo South Student Remains Hospitalized

Posted:

A Fargo South student remains hospitalized a day after a serious swimming accident.

A male student was found unconscious in the high school swimming pool during a physical education class.

Although school officials are not saying much, today they did tell us the student is still alive, and receiving medical attention at a local hospital.

They declined an on camera interview with us today, refused to release the students name. And also would not comment on the district's pool-related policy.

Two teachers were on the pool deck yesterday but district officials will not say if either one was lifeguard certified.

A supervisor at West Fargo's pool says students--or anyone for that matter--are never allowed in the pool unless a lifeguard is present.

I'm sure they don't have somebody like me in each one of their schools. I don't know what it is that they do. It's really something that you wish would never happen to anybody and hoping for the best of the situation.

Fargo police did not return calls for an interview.
