A Johnstown woman was killed Wednesday when her overfull swimming pool gave way causing her to hit her head, says Cambria County Coroner Jeff Lees. Lees says 64-year-old Kathleen Esposito was trying to drain excess water from recent storms out of her above-ground swimming pool, when the walls burst. According to Lees, the water carried Esposito 14 feet onto her patio where she hit her head. Lees says the swimming pool was 28 years old. Esposito was taken to Conemaugh Memorial where she died from her head injuries early Thursday morning.
