According to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, it happened around 6 p.m. at a swimming pool at Ramada Inn on Industrial Boulevard.

He ended up at the bottom of the pool and his family wasn’t able to pull him out.

Hotel employees and bystanders eventually got him out, and emergency crews arrived and performed CPR.
