Codorus park pool closes early after incident involving boy


A male was taken to the hospital from the swimming pool at Codorus State Park Friday afternoon, officials confirmed.


According to Chris Novak, spokeswoman for the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the pool is closed and might be closed for the rest of the day at the Hanover-area park.

According to York County 911 dispatches, a young boy was in cardiac arrest at the pool just before 2:30 p.m. A helicopter was initially called to the scene, but the call was cancelled and the boy was taken to a local hospital by ambulance.

The pool was scheduled to be open until 7 p.m. Friday but was closed when a reporter arrived shortly after 3 p.m.
