Pool worker suffers chemical burns

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._A pool worker was taken to the hospital Wednesday afternoon with chemical burns after an accident at a swimming pool at a home on Lake Avenue on Lawton's east side.

Witnesses said the man, who works for a local pool company, was mixing some chemicals in a bucket that was going to be dumped into the pool. But before he could do that, a chemical reaction erupted in the bucket, spraying the man's face, chest, and hands. Crews rushed him to the hospital.

No word on his condition.
