Mayhem at McCarren

New, 16 comments

Q: What's the worst summer job in NYC? A: Lifeguarding at McCarren Pool. Yet another violent incident broke out Tuesday evening when the lifeguards tried to stop an unruly group of youths from backflipping into the 3'10" deep water. When they wouldn't listen, the lifeguards decided to close the pool, the crowd starting booing, and all hell broke loose. Cops had to use pepper spray to subdue the crowd, and three people were arrested. [Daily Intel; previously]
