did anyone hear about the korean boy that drowned at the hudson valley resort around july 4th weekend?

this story was swept under the rug, and kept hush hush. but apparently a little boy drowned in the pool, now both pools outdoor and indoor are closed by order of dept of health, apparently the resort failed to report the death in a timely manner, this is just all what I've heard, looking for more information.

Please. This is a terrible tragedy but I think you have the sequence of events confused- nothing was "kept under the rug".

The boy was pulled from the pool by the hotel lifeguard who immediately contacted the authorities and administered CPR until the ambulance arrived. The emergency responders took the boy to Westchester Medical Center on life support.

The hotel's pools were closed immediately after the incident "pending investigation". I assume this was done in an abundance of caution.

The boy died two days later, 90 miles away. The hotel had no death to report, and local papers didn't pick up the story because it involved a child from NYC and a death which occurred in Westchester. Nothing was "kept hush hush".

While the pools are still closed it looks like a bureaucratic matter rather than a safety issue: the owners- a giant multinational corporation- postponed the health department's hearing in August which would have allowed the hotel to reopen them at that time.

My heart goes out to the family, and I pray for healing in the aftermath of this tragic accident.
