We are investigating an incident in which a 3-year-old girl was found at the bottom of the Motel 6 pool earlier this afternoon on South Timberland Drive.

At 4:56 p.m. dispatch received a call from a motel employee who was watching on camera from the lobby as a Good Samaritan administered CPR to the child after pulling her from the pool.

It appears the girl got out of her family’s downstairs room which faced the pool while her father was asleep. She managed to enter the fenced pool area due to a broken gate latch.

Lufkin Fire paramedics arrived and transported her to CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial Lufkin. She was then flown to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. Her condition and prognosis and unknown.

“We know from surveillance video that she was under water for several minutes,” Lufkin Police spokeswoman Jessica Pebsworth said. “She and her family could use all the prayers they can get.”

The incident remains under investigation.

This tragedy could have been prevented with replacing a $20.00 latch. Geez

Oh yes, its the latches fault. Perhaps the hotel room door was also faulty. Nothing to do with the sleeping parent.

This was preventable in a couple ways....faulty latch on the pool gate and an unsupervised toddler. Hopes and prayers are with this little girl and her family.

so-called parents are only parents these days when it's convenient for them it seems. thats with anything. unfortunately, i live in a apartment complex and there are several children living here but they cannot be children. the parents are lazy, self-centered, and selfish and will not even take them to the park ....across the street...! but, they sure look forward to that huge earned income check in feb.
