Katlyn Pineda, a 7-year-old Bronxite, was found unresponsive in a pool by her mother at the Marriott Melville Long Island hotel at approximately 4:50 p.m. Thursday, according to police.
Pineda was transported to Plainview Hospital in critical condition before being transferred to Cohen Children’s Medical Center in Queens, Suffolk County police said.
A Suffolk County police spokesperson did not have an update on her condition late Tuesday morning.
Suffolk County Police Second Squad detectives are investigating the incident, and a spokesperson told the Bronx Times the girl was found by her mother specifically, as earlier reports said she was found by a family member.
The hotel, located at 1350 Walt Whitman Road, has an indoor pool.
The Bronx Times has reached out to Marriott for comment.
