BRIGHTON, N.Y. (WROC) — A 5-year-old boy was hospitalized after he was “found at the bottom of the pool” in a hotel, according to the Brighton Police Department.

On Tuesday, around 8:17 p.m. Brighton Police responded to the County Inn and Suites on East Henrietta Road for the report of a child at the bottom of the pool.

Prior to the Brighton Police officers’ arrival, the child had been removed from the pool and lifesaving efforts were administered by guests at the hotel.

He was breathing, but unresponsive while being treated. The boy was then transported to Strong Memorial Hospital where he regained consciousness.

“At this time, we are unsure if the child choked on food while in the pool or had nearly drowned. The incident is still under investigation and no charges have been filed,” officials said in a release.
