Twenty-eight people suffered mild respiratory ailments Monday after at least 10 gallons of hydrochloric acid drained into a crowded public swimming pool in Paramount. County fire officials said the victims--some as young as 3 months old--were either taking or giving swimming lessons at a pool in the 14600 block of Orange Avenue when a valve that releases small amounts of acid into the pool stuck open, creating a cloud of noxious fumes.
