two bleeding cuts touched underwater in a swimming pool what would the chances of being infected be.

since there is no oxygen would the hiv die because of the chlorine?

I suppose if an HIV + and HIV - person both slashed their wrists and vigorously rubbed them together underwater there would be a remote chance of infection.

Other than that, NO risk whatsoever.

I thought this person "tapped" you on the back in the pool? There were not cuts.

Also chlorine kills the virus outside of the body immediately so there is no chance unless you slashed your wrists and sealed the cut before you put them under water.

I wonder if there are any documented cases of this happening?
