6 remain hospitalized from hotel carbon monoxide poisonings

The patients included the six children, hotel staff, two Berrien County deputies and a Nile City police officer.

Niles Police Chief Jim Millin said 13-year-old Bryan Douglas Watts, of Niles, was pronounced dead at Lakeland after he and the other children were discovered unresponsive at the pool. The other six children hospitalized as a result of the toxic leak ranged in age from 12-14.

Don Wise says a high level of carbon monoxide was detected in the pool area and lower levels were found in other parts of the hotel.

Officials say that the carbon monoxide levels were at 800 parts per million, which is dangerously high - 50 parts per million is an acceptable level.

A seventh child was found not breathing in a hotel room. A "few" hotel employees and first responders taken to the hospital are expected to make a full recovery.

First responders rushed the children to local hospitals; some of the rescuers were overcome by the noxious gas in the attempt, South Bend, Indiana, NBC-affiliate WNDU reported. Police said she had just been in the pool area with the other children.

Carbon monoxide levels were later found to be 16 times the safe limit.

Fire officials said they believe the cause was carbon monoxide poisoning. They then went through each floor of the hotel to evacuate any remaining visitors and staff. U.S. standards for carbon monoxide are 35 parts per million for a one-hour exposure.

The hotel is closed and Wise says it is unlikely to re-open Saturday.

Carbon monoxide, sometimes referred to as "the silent killer", is an odourless, colourless and tasteless gas produced when a fuel is burned.
