Swimming school owner arrested

The 59-year-old owner of a private swimming school in Den Bosch has been arrested on suspicion of child abuse, various newspapers report on Tuesday.

Indecent photos were found on the man’s computer, leading to his arrest. The man specialised in teaching handicapped children and children who were afraid of water to swim.
It emerged later that the man was present when his five-year-old grandson drowned during a swimming lesson last year.
