(KMOV) – A 9-year-old boy was hospitalized Friday night after he was rescued from the bottom of a pool at the Spring Hills Suites in Bridgeton.

Officials say there were four to five children in the pool when one of the children noticed a boy at the bottom. They dragged the boy out of the pool with the assistance of an adult, and emergency officials were on the scene shortly thereafter.

The boy was taken to the SSM DePaul Health Center. He is expected to be okay and will remain hospitalized overnight as a precaution.
