Child drowns in downtown hotel pool

   A nine year old south city boy is dead.  His twin brother is in very critical condition after a accident at a hotel pool near downtown St. Louis Saturday afternoon.  

   Police say Laron Snelson was unresponsive when he was pulled from the indoor pool at the Pear Tree Inn on Market Street.  Civilians began CPR right away, but the little boy died anyway. 

   His twin brother, Derron Snelson was also pulled from the indoor pool.  He's listed in critical and unstable condition at Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital.  

   Investigators are still trying to determine what led to the drowning.  The boys' mother and 14 year old brother were reportedly on the scene.

   The Pear Tree Inn is a Drury Hotel property.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A new state report shows the number of Illinois children killed by abuse or neglect over the past year likely will be the state's most in a quarter century.

   The report released Thursday by the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services showed 94 of the 223 deaths investigated during the latest fiscal year that ended June 30 involved credible evidence of abuse or neglect.

   With 45 cases still being investigated and awaiting an official ruling, the number of abuse-related deaths appears likely to surpass the state's previous high of 102 in the 1989 fiscal year.

   Explanations for the latest increase remain elusive.

   But DCFS spokesman Dave Clarkin says the numbers underscore the importance of citizens proactively reporting suspected abuse or neglect before it proves fatal.

A tearful plea today from the grandmother of a two-year-old boy who was killed by a hit and run driver Sunday night in Spanish Lake. "Whoever you are, please have a conscience.  (sobs) And just come forward. My grandson did not deserve this."

St Louis County police say two-year-old Darion Griffin ran out into the street around  8 p.m. in the 1500 block of Redmond Road.  Witnesses told police that a white SUV with tinted windows was speeding eastbound on Redmond near Bellefontaine Road when it hit  the toddler and his 17-year-old aunt, Sheria Evans.   Police say Evans was trying to pull the child from the path of the vehicle. The SUV didn't stop.  

Both victims were rushed to a nearby hospital where the boy was pronounced dead. The teen suffered minor injuries.  

Anyone with information is urged to call St. Louis County Police.

No charges will be filed against the driver of a pickup truck that struck and killed a six year old boy late Tuesday afternoon.

The Missouri Highway Patrol reports that the accident happened about 5:00 p.m. along Highway 8 near Highway P, just west of Park Hills, in St. Francois County.

Police say two boys had been playing along the roadside when Evan Ketto ran into the path of the truck. It swerved, but couldn't avoid striking him.

The child was airlifted to a Farmington hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
