6 remain hospitalized from hotel carbon monoxide poisonings

6 remain hospitalized from hotel carbon monoxide poisonings

A possible carbon monoxide leak at a southwestern MI hotel has sent about dozen people - including children and first responders - to area hospitals. Millin says responding officers administered chest compressions to some children and helped get the affected kids into awaiting ambulances.

WNDU-TV and WSBT-TV report officials at Lakeland Hospital in Niles confirmed the child's death Saturday.

According to Lakeland Hospital in Niles spokesperson, 13-year-old Bryan Douglas Watts was dead on arrival. The Niles Police Department said the six children ranged in ages from 12 to 14. "I couldn't even see them breathing", said hotel guest and witness Francine Saunders.

"At first I thought someone drowned, because when I came out of my room, there was a body lying on the floor in the hallway and then there was five of them lying by the pool", the woman, who was not identified, told Reuters.

A total of 15 people were transported from the scene to two area hospitals, including six adults and nine children.

Two county deputies and two hotel employees were also taken to hospitals after helping the unconscious victims.

The entire hotel had to be evacuated. The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration prohibits workers from being exposed to more than 50 parts averaged over an 8-hour period.

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

"Carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless, tasteless". "At those levels, they don't have much time before they're going to go unresponsive".

Niles authorities said it was too early to know the cause of the carbon monoxide leak, but Wise suspects it could have been from a natural gas heater.

"The ventilation system on the heater had issues, the exhaust was not functioning properly", said Wise. If the case is isolated to just the pool area, the hotel will reopen once fully aired out.
