Fox News is reporting that Darcey Morgan (6 yrs old) nearly drowned in a hotel swimming pool after her hair got sucked into a pool filter.   According to the report, the hotel tried to cover up the event. Morgan’s family was staying at a hotel on the Canary Islands.

Darcey was underwater for over 2 minutes, according to her mother, Alex Morgan, who posted a lengthy description about the incident on Facebook Tuesday.

“Some incredibly brave people saved our little girl’s life that day. Her hair was pulled and pulled before it was ripped,” Morgan wrote.

After freeing her from the filter, bystanders administered CPR to the girl by the poolside.

Morgan says the hotel handled the situation “poorly” and attempted to hide evidence, such as the hair pulled from her daughter’s head.  She also says the staff didn’t conduct a proper investigation, and failed to close the pool after learning of the incident.

According to Morgan, two days prior to the incident with Darcey, the same filter sucked in a 9-year-old boy by the swimming shorts as he swam past.   The incident was reported to lifeguards, but no action was taken.

Morgan says she’s speaking out because she doesn’t want other families to experience the same horror her family faced.

“[We] don’t want other parents/family members to go through what we experienced that day. We will never get over what happened but if this post can raise some awareness, save someone’s life, then we will be happy,” wrote Morgan, concluding the post.
