Hearing Set For Drownings at SC Pool

A date has been set for a formal inquest into how two teenagers died at a Darlington Pool earlier this month.

The inquest revolves around the deaths of Timquan McAllister, 13, and Justin McKay, 13, who were both found at the bottom of a city public pool after lifeguards cleared the water for bad weather.

The Darlington coroner's office and the pool management team are both doing a full investigation into what lead to the drowning deaths. The findings will help avoid a pool accident like this in the future. The city's investigation is on hold until the coroner can interview witnesses and make a determination as to how the youths died.  

Parents and families will be devastated by any findings, and some may seek to find a responsible party.
