A young boy was rushed to the hospital after a reported drowning at Embassy Suites.
Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service was dispatched to the hotel on Woodcrest Place, which is off Red Mountain Expressway, just after 7p.m. Saturday, said Battalion Chief Jackie Hicks.
When medics arrived at the hotel’s indoor pool, bystanders were performing CPR on the child. Initial reports put the child’s age at 5 years old, but that has not been confirmed.
The child was rushed to Children’s of Alabama in critical condition, Hicks said.
