PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -- A California man died Sunday after he was electrocuted in a family swimming pool, according to KESQ.
According to the Palm Springs Police Department, 43-year-old James Tramel dove into the pool to save children who had been shocked and were turning blue.
The man died at a local hospital. A 9-year-old girl who he was trying to rescue remains in critical condition and a 10-year-old girl is in stable condition.
Four other people were treated and released.
Stephen Little, who has been working with pools for more than 16 years, said inspections on a pools electrical work should be done twice a year.
"Lights are required by national electric code to be grounded and bonded, and that is one of the primary things that should be inspected at least twice a year," he said.
Little added that if the GFI is working properly it should shut off power to the pool if there is a problem.
A total of seven people were shocked during the Easter Sunday pool party.
