Officials: Girl Pulled From Hotel Pool, Revived by Grandmother

Authorities in Rhode Island say a young girl found unresponsive in a hotel pool was pulled out by another child and revived by her grandmother.

Smithfield Rescue Lt. Christopher Fusaro tells The Providence Journal the girl had been playing with other children at the Holiday Inn Express around 9:30 p.m. Thursday when someone noticed she was face-down in the water and pulled her out.

Fusaro says the girl's grandmother performed CPR after determining she didn't have a pulse and wasn't breathing. The girl then vomited and opened her eyes.

He says the girl was conscious and breathing but unresponsive. She was taken to Hasbro Children's Hospital. WJAR-TV reports the girl is in stable condition.
