8-Year-Old Boy Drowns in Hotel Pool

An 8-year-old boy drowned in a Desert Hot Springs pool Friday night. Authorities have identified the child as Issac Moore of Desert Hot Springs. Moore was attending a birthday party at the Vista Ventana Resort and Spa when he was discovered in the pool.

Guest Attempts CPR on 8-Year-Old Boy

According to hotel management, Moore was playing a game in the pool with other children from the party. A party guest pulled an unconscious Moore out of the water sometime around 9 p.m. A woman in attendance then began CPR and other life-saving measures on Moore. However, she could not save the 8-year-old boy.

Desert Hot Springs police and Riverside County firefighters responded to the scene shortly afterward. They transported Moore to Desert Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 10:43 p.m. Police believe the drowning was an accident, but the incident remains under investigation.

Drowning can happen within the matter of a few minutes. Because it is silent, it often goes unnoticed until it is too late. It is imperative that the adults in charge are paying attention the whole time. Read over our 5 things to know to prevent drowning incidents for more information.
