CLYDE, OH (WOIO) -

19 Action News Investigator Scott Taylor takes us on a tour of Whirlpool Park where the EPA has found 9 feet of toxic sludge underneath the outdoor rec center that opened in 1953. 

Thousands of people swam in the Park located just southwest of Clyde, Ohio where seven kids have died in the Clyde Cancer Cluster including the Mother of 11 year old Alex Brown who died. 

It closed in 2006 and now Whirlpool has entered into a deal with the new property owners to test the entire Park and pay for any clean up.
