Couple hurt when backyard pool collapses
(2007-07-10)
(WOUB) - A backyard dip turned into a trip to the hospital for an eastern Ohio couple.

James and Lori Tobin of Bellaire are recovering after one of the sides gave way yesterday on their aboveground swimming pool. Police Chief Mike Kovalyk says the 14 year old pool was holding more than seven-thousand gallons of water when it collapsed, and the Tobins were swept into the side of their house and onto their patio.

They suffered only minor injuries. The chief says Lori Tobin was X-rayed for a possible cracked rib.

The water also flooded their home.

Bellaire is about 125 miles east of Columbus.
