Homeowner shocked when pool pops out of ground

LESLIE, GA (WALB) -

So much ground water built up in a back yard in Leslie, it pushed a decades-old pool right out of the ground.

A 20-foot by 60-foot cement pool that used be in the ground behind Earl Kendrick's East Allen Street home is now tilted out of the ground.

Kendrick says he never even considered anything like this was possible. "I don't know if anyone ever seen nothing like it. I never heard nothing like it until I seen my own. Started cleaning it out a day or 2 before it happened and now look here."

The Kendricks are checking with their insurance company to see if they'll pay to remove the pool and clean up the mess.
