FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — A mother says her 9-year-old son told two lifeguards that a woman had not resurfaced after going underwater last weekend at a murky public swimming pool in Massachusetts.

The body of 36-year-old Marie Joseph was found in the Fall River pool two days later. Officials have been investigating how she could have been in the pool for so long without being noticed.

The boy's mother tells the Boston Herald that the woman had bumped into her son on a pool slide before she disappeared underwater.

She says the boy told two of the six lifeguards that were on duty that the woman never came out of the water. She says one told him she was on break, and the other said he would do a pool check but never did.
