Lifeguard injured when pool pipe bursts

A lifeguard suffered numerous injuries, including a broken leg, when a water pipe burst on the roof of a 12-story apartment building in downtown Baltimore yesterday.

The injured woman, Mary Ann Rosenburg, 19, was being treated yesterday at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center. She was apparently performing routine maintenance about 1:30 p.m. on the pool filtration system - on the roof of a building in the 600 block of Park Ave. - when the 4-inch pipe burst, causing a burst of water that catapulted her about 10 feet, according to Fire Department Battalion Chief Martin H. Caterton.

The lifeguard was alone at the time. A woman at another pool, on the roof of a nearby building, witnessed the incident and called 911, fire officials said.In Baltimore County
