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.
