Low Country Toddler Drowns at Motel Pool

A 3-year-old boy is dead after drowning in a low country motel pool.

Ridgeland Police say it all happened at the America's Best Value Inn and Suites Friday afternoon while the boy and his 4-year-old sister were playing near the pool.

The boy's father was nearby and was working on renovations at the motel.   Police say the boy was transported to the hospital where he died this weekend.
