Marie Joseph’s body was found on June 26, two days after a boy reported that he saw her fall into the pool.  Regional Director Brian Shanahan and District Manager Jeff Carter will be charged with reckless child endangerment charges after allowing the pool to remain open.

Joseph, a mother of five and Haitian immigrant, hit her head after coming down a waterslide and bumping into a 9-year-old boy, passed out and drowned. It was reported that the boy went to tell a lifeguard she had fallen into the pool, but was ignored.

Her body remained, undetected, in the cloudy, 12-foot deep water until it was found by two teens that were trespassing in after hours. Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter announced the charges yesterday following an investigation into the Joseph’s death.
