9/11 Memorial evacuated due to foul odor

Some concerning moments here at the 9/11 Memorial when a foul chemical like smell started emanating  from the South Pool causing for about a two hour long evacuation. Some people also reported scratchy throats and teary eyes. . Workers here say they've been putting chemicals in both pools to kill off the algae and the foul odor was a by-product of that. They drained the pools - then let folks back in.

I'm covering the story for 1010 WINS.
