Reed pool temporarily closed due to purple water

Posted: Updated:

A Tarrytown pool is temporarily closed after someone pulled a prank to turn the pool purple.

A photo from Austin Parks and Rec shows the aftermath of the prank at Reed Pool.

Officials say they started working immediately to remove the dye. They are doing what they call "shocking" the pool, basically treating it with a lot of bleach.

The water is clearing up but officials say it's still a bit cloudy.

They’re not sure who did it, but say this doesn't happen often.
