“… a 3-year-old boy, who was with his father and several other children in the pool and hot tub area, drowned…he was sitting on the ledge of the hot tub, when the father went back up to the room to retrieve something…”
Soon after the father went back to the room, the children decided to get into the pool and lost track of the 3-year-old, according to Southfield Police Lt. Nick Loussia.
“Nobody saw the 3-year-old fall in,” Loussia said. “When the father came back, he saw the kids in the pool, looked in the hot tub and saw the 3-year-old in the hot tub.”
The father pulled the boy out and began performing CPR while hotel staff called 911. Paramedics and police responded to the scene and transported the boy to Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, where he was pronounced dead.
