Inflatable Pool Flips Over on Arizona Man During Monsoon

An inflatable pool flipped over on a man in Mesa, Arizona, on the night of July 17, as he attempted to rescue it from strong winds.

This video filmed by Rebecca Hill shows the pool flipping on her husband, Marvin. She captioned the footage, “My husband (Marvin Hill) saved our pool from being a victim of the Arizona monsoon. Not without it trying to devour him first!.”

Rebecca Hill told Storyful that the pool was a graduation gift for the couple’s grandchildren, so she “didn’t want it to be a victim of the Arizona monsoon and fly away.”

A storm swept over the area that night, with the National Weather Service issuing flash flood warnings for Maricopa County. Credit: Rebecca Hill via Storyful
