Safety fence installed at pool where children drowned

CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- The city of Cape Coral is taking action at a condo complex where two young children tragically drowned in a pool earlier this week.

Friday, a pool barrier was installed around the pool at the Aurora Townhouse condos on Southwest 47th Terrace.

Monday night, a three-year-old boy and his one-year-old sister accidentally fell in while their father left to go the bathroom.

The barrier comes days after the city posted signs on the property deeming the pools unsafe. The property manager says a fence had previously surrounded the pool, but the condo association voted earlier this year to remove it.
