The drowning of a St. Louis Park Middle School student has prompted Minnesota schools to scrutinize their widely varying pool safety policies in hopes of preventing a similar tragedy.
Abdullahi Charif, 12, was found floating in the deep end of the school's pool during a physical education class Thursday. He died two days later.
Attorney for the boy's family said he did not know how to swim and questioned how his drowning went unnoticed. On Tuesday, he pointed to a state Department of Health report that said no lifeguard was present at the time.
