The fact it’s an above ground pool, usually those aren’t more the 4 or 5 feet deep, says it was more than just drowning. I’m agreeing with others. There was probably faulty electric connections to blame

Never replace the GFI plug with a cheap replacement and always have a professional wire your pool. This isn’t the first or the last time I’ve heard of this and yes I’m making an assumption but it’s an educated one.

Anytime you hear of mass drowning in a pool first thought is accidental electrocution from equipment malfunction not murder.

Wow that’s super sad. I’m sure something went wrong like electrocution or something might’ve been off with the water… idk it’s super sad. I’m so sorry to the family.
One of the most common things i hear about every few years are deaths like this one usually there is an electrical short in a pool light or something and when someone enters the pool they are stunned and cry or are seen in distress then another person instinctively will jump in trying to help and they also get stunned and drown. Im not sure if this is the case here but like i mentioned its a common occurrence.

The chances of 3 people drowning in a swimming pool at the very same time, screams homicide..
By the pool heater that shorted, electrocuting them, apparently..
Which, inreturn, could also very well scream homicide ..

How do 3 people die at the same time in an above ground pool???? Sounds very suspicious. Someone mention faulty electrical may be the culprit.
