A new pool in the California park is the first of its kind in the U.S. and could have indoor and outdoor swimming holes, and could also have a pool house.
The water is being supplied by a hydroelectric system and the pool house is expected to open by the end of the summer.
The California Recreation and Fish Commission voted Monday to give approval for the $40 million, 14-hole pool, which would be about 100 feet long and 100 feet wide.
The facility, dubbed Oneill, would sit at a creek bed in the town of Lassen in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
The pool will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., but it will be closed to swimming during the summer, according to the California Recreation Commission.
It is the largest indoor pool in California, and it’s the first in the state for the recreational industry to offer an indoor pool with swimming facilities, according the commission.
A man in a white bathrobe and white bathing suit sat in the bathroom mirror as his three-year-old daughter, Kaitlyn, washed up in a bathtub.
He took a deep breath.
“I know she’s happy,” he said.
The father and daughter were just trying to be safe, he said, while still trying to keep a straight face.
He’s not a doctor, but he knew that the risk of catching an STD and transmitting it to a child is very real.
I think he was just trying for the best,” he continued.
The father had just washed his hands after using the bathroom, he told The Washington Free Beacon.
He paused and thought for a moment. “
My daughter just washed her hands and it’s just a normal thing,” he added.
He paused and thought for a moment.
“Then I saw that there was a stain on the side of her face,” he recounted.
He said he then immediately wiped his face with the towel and looked at his daughter.
“And then she just said, ‘Dad, is there a stain?’
I just said no.”
The boy’s father told The Post he noticed that the girl’s skin was slightly flushed.
“She’s a little upset about it,” he told the newspaper.
After the boy told his mother what had happened, the mother called a neighbor who called 911.
The child was taken to a local hospital where she later tested negative for the STDs.
At a local mall, a clerk told The Associated Press that he saw the father take his daughter’s towel and wipe her face.
Another man told the AP that he was trying to get his daughter to do a little self-washing.
He also told her that he thought it would help her get rid of the stain.
She had never had a problem before, he added, and he just wanted her to get used to it.
“She doesn’t want to touch her hands or face,” the man told The AP.
His daughter was being taken to the same facility for a second STD test.
“She had no idea how dirty she was going to get.”
She tested negative again, the clerk said.
The man told police that his daughter told him she did not want to do any self-disinfection, saying she would do it “as long as I have to.”
In an email, the mall clerk told the Associated Press he was not sure why the father chose to wash his hands but did not give further details.
The clerk did say that he did not have any other children.
There was no immediate word on the father’s charges.
