ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - A child is dead and his twin brother is in the hospital after an incident at a hotel pool in downtown St. Louis.

It happened around 4:45 p.m. Saturday at the Pear Tree Inn on Market Street.

Investigators say the 9-year-old twins were swimming in the pool when they were found unresponsive. Both were taken to Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center.

One of the twins was pronounced dead at the hospital. The other boy is still in the hospital. It's not clear how he's doing.

Police have not released either of the twins' names at this point.

The investigation has been turned over to the child abuse unit, which is standard when a child dies.
