6 remain hospitalized from hotel carbon monoxide poisonings

Crews respond to a carbon monoxide leak at the Quality Inn in Niles MI

One person was found dead and eight others were hospitalized after a group of people were found unconscious around a hotel's indoor pool in southern MI on Saturday (April 1).

Six other children were taken to Memorial South Bend Hospital in IN, police said. As of 6 p.m. Saturday, two children were listed in serious condition, five are listed as fair and one child and a police officer have been treated and released.

Officials identified the child who died as the result of a carbon monoxide leak at Quality Inn in Niles as 13-year-old Bryan Douglas Watts. The Niles Police Department said the six children ranged in ages from 12 to 14.

Officials detected higher-than-normal carbon monoxide levels in other areas of the hotel, but not as risky as the level detected in the pool area, Wise said.

A malfunctioning pool heater at the Quality Inn & Suites in Niles is being blamed for the death of a young boy and for sending about a dozen to area hospitals. In total, nine people were taken to Memorial Hospital in South Bend and four were taken to Lakeland Hospital in Niles. Three were released by Saturday evening and the other five were reported in good condition Sunday at noon.

The reading in the pool area was 800 parts per million, Wise said. USA standards for carbon monoxide are 35 parts per million for a one-hour exposure. The monitors went off and the time it would've taken us to go back out, get air packs, suited and come back in, we could grab the patients and start pulling them out as we leave.

It is unclear if there was a carbon monoxide detector in the pool area.
