Air Duct Accident Closes Fitness Center Pool

The pool area at Choice Fitness Center in Grand Forks, N.D., was closed over the weekend after a 60-foot section of a heating and cooling air duct fell from the ceiling.

According to Valley News, the duct fell from the ceiling just after 5 A.M. on Friday morning. Crews are still trying to figure out why the duct fell, but it is believed the issue was restricted to the aquatics area.

No injuries were sustained during the incident.

“Basically, that duct work came down during a time the pool was closed, so we were extremely fortunate that there was nobody in the aquatics area at that time,” Mike Orr of Choice Fitness told Valley News.

A dollar figure for the damage has not been released.
