A chlorine leak at a Sacramento water park sent 20 people to the hospital, including nine children.

Officials said it appears a mechanical failure at one of the pools caused the excessive release of chlorine.

Lifeguards had to quickly move visitors away from the pool.

At least two victims had trouble breathing. Others complained of burning eyes.

Three park employees were taken to the hospital.
