I believe this parent has very good ground's to sue the school and the state for a breech of care due to there negligence in there care of this child but I am not in the state's so am now aware of how this would play out, still this is disgusting and more so in that the teacher's left this child to freeze, at least the other children cared, from what I know of the states the people of minnesota seem a really nice bunch so I am shocked at this behaviour and negligence.

Well, excuse me Sherlock. The chart was just to show how quickly frostbite can set in, and at what temps, to give people an idea. It's just good science. I can't believe you are whining about it. No one expects the teacher to be looking at charts, but common sense says that children in bathing suits aren't rushed outside in these temps.
Oh yes and the girl was wet, I believe her hair was wet and that likely intensified the risk. Remember in White Fang when the guy fell in the icy water and they fished him out and pulled all his clothes off and wrapped him in a blanket and built a fire immediately? All that was for a reason.edit on 6-3-2014 by ThirdEyeofHorus because: (no reason given)

Like I said above, I've been evacuated from work in a similar fashion out into the freezing cold and snow.

.so I say it didn't happen the way it was reported.
Come to think of it, even if the school was on fire how much danger could she be in if she had stayed in the pool?
The purpose of a rule is for safety. If the rule makes for an unsafe condition, it's a bad rule. An adjustment is in order.
