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.
