A 10-year-old Los Alamos boy is in fair condition Thursday morning after nearly drowning in a hotel pool in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
The boy remains at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.
The Council Bluffs’ newspaper, The Daily Nonpareil, reported the city’s fire and rescue personnel responded to the Quality Inn and Suites at 6:40 p.m. Tuesday after reports of the 10-year-old being found in the pool.
The newspaper said the child was swimming with his 14-year-old sister when he went under water.
Police Sgt. Pat Toscano told The Nonpareil, “He didn’t come up, and she started to figure he might be in trouble. She was able to pull him from the pool.”
