Woman Catches Belly Button Ring In Pool Drain
CBS4 ^ | November 15, 2012

Posted on 11/16/2012 3:48:50 PM PST by nickcarraway

A Weld County mother got her belly button ring caught in a pool drain on Wednesday.

It happened at about 12:48 p.m. the Greeley Family Funplex in the Zero Depth Pool.

Fire crews had to drain the entire pool to free the 31-year-old woman.

Crews first attempted to turn the ring in order to free the swimmer but were unsuccessful. After several attempts the ring was manipulated so it could be released and free the swimmer.

She was not injured.

“Guess where I’m pierced?” LOL!

That must’ve been one honkin’ HUGE belly ring! Why wouldn’t it just tear out under pressure, as would an earring?

Are they mounted through your spine or something? Gawd.

I hate needles. It took a lot of vodka and a trusted friend to get me to pierce my ears.

And Daddy is STILL none too happy with me, 36 years later, LOL!

Wonder if she was at the bottom of the gene pool?

If it was a “Zero Depth Pool” why did it need to be drained?

I draw the line at any piercings beyond the ears. And only one tiny one per ear. Nose, tongue, belly button, eye brow, lips, head and nether regions are just nasty.

Guessing it was shallow enough for her to keep her head above water but why put a drain in such a shallow place? Wouldn’t it have been easier and cheaper to just cut the ring off? Of course, she’ll make the pool company pay for her trama.

Apparently she didn’t have an outey or they could have just cut it off.

Okay I don’t necessarily need pictures but I do need some sort of diagram to see how this is possible...

Yes, they certainly are, especially the nose and lip rings. Those studs and hoops must be teeming with bacteria, like the oosie-goosies one might find under long, vulgar fingernails.

High school biology teachers should have their classes culture a few labeled samples and let the kids stare in disbelief at what Rasheeka is carrying around. How do women manage basic hygiene with those nasty claws? Gag... answer is, they can’t.

IMHO, clean, wholesome, and fresh can be much sexier and definitely a whole lot safer!

Drain the Pool = Free woman

Where was the drowning in this story?

I love a guy who’s prepared for all eventualities. Does it have an LED flashlight? “I never carry one.”

I want so very badly to express sorrow for this poor woman, but am unable to create for myself a mood of remorse. Where can I get help?

Why would you need a flashlight when your smile could light up any room?

I would have been glad to pierce your ears and I wouldn't even need to drink vodka.

Oh wait, the vodka was for you.

Buy me some bourbon and lets go for a nose ring.

Wait for new federal regulations on pool drains. At a cost of a mere $30K per pool.
