A 7-year-old boy drowned yesterday while swimming in an East Toledo hotel pool, authorities said.
Isiah Thomas of 309 West Oakland St. was taken to Bay Park Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at about 7:30 p.m., authorities said.
Young Thomas was visiting the Days Inn, 1800 Miami St., with his family for a get-together.
A group of children was playing in the pool, and the adults had gotten dinner together when they noticed the boy was missing.
They searched around the hotel before they found him at the bottom of the pool, authorities said.
Rescue crews were called at about 6:50 p.m. When they arrived someone was already administering CPR, but the boy was unresponsive.
