Broadmoor man turns his neighborhood sinkhole into a swimming pool

Solving New Orleans' heat AND poor infrastructure

Here’s one way to deal with New Orleans’ crushing summer heat and poor infrastructure. A Broadmoor man decided to take a dip in his street’s sinkhole, as captured in a WDSU video.

He even pulled out one of those trendy giant swan pool toys for this makeshift swimming hole. The neighbors, understandably, were horrified. See the video here.
