    Man, that would not be a good day for him. Hope he had insurance, both on equipment and liablility for the pool. I also have some customers the have inground pools, when I am cutting by them I always wondered if that had happened to anybody. Now I know.

    I almost did that twice, but got lucky, it was seawalls though not pools. However one of the times i was able to keep the mower on dry land but not myself. I got some very bad scrapes out of that one.
