Family mourns after teen drowns in apartment pool

CHARLOTTE - The Mecklenburg County Health Department will return to an east Charlotte pool Tuesday to investigate the drowning of Abishek Tamang, a 13-year-old boy.

Investigators said the water at the Woodridge Apartments was so murky they could not see his body at the bottom of the pool Saturday.

The Health Department tested the water and said chlorine and other levels came back normal. They said the murkiness was definitely an issue.

“If the water is that cloudy, it should not be open,” said Tim Dutcher, with the Health Department.

He says pools have 60 days to get inspections after opening.

The pool opened a few days ago and had not been inspected for the season.
