Plaintiff was injured at a municipal bathing beach as the result of a dive from a spring board into shallow water. Held, that while the city was not liable for the negligent performance of a governmental function, the jury would be justified in finding that the diving board, as erected, constituted a nuisance, and that the defendant city would be liable, on that ground, for personal injuries sustained by the plaintiff. Hoffman v. City of Bristol, 113 Conn. 386, 155 Atl. 499 (1931).
