What happened at the Hampton Inn in Marysville, Ohio?
Multiple guests at the Hampton Inn in Marysville, Ohio, were transported to local hospitals on Saturday following an incident involving hazardous materials in the pool area.
According to Marysville Police Chief, Tony Brooks, a call at around 5.30pm local time identified a two-year-old girl as either “fallen into the pool” or “found in the pool unconscious.”
A slew of other calls involving complaints of dizziness and a “burning in the throat” also came in at the time, said Brooks.
The hotel has since been evacuated, and the Marysville Fire and Police Departments are working to identify the problem.
It is currently unclear whether or not the incident involves chemicals or a carbon monoxide leak.
How many people were injured at the scene?
According to a tweet from Ohio-based journalist Mike McCarthy, a multitude of people received medical care on the scene.
“NOW: At least 16 people have received medical care. 7 people are in critical condition. 2 people were treated at the scene. Others are in stable condition or were walk-in patients at Memorial Hospital,” he wrote via Twitter.
Chief Brooks said all the injured were alive when transported, but is not updated on whether or not any conditions worsened after leaving the scene.
