Colorado Springs, CO – Drowning Incident at Hotel Elegante Leaves Child Injured

Colorado Springs, CO (July 19, 2021) – Authorities were requested at the scene of a drowning incident in the Colorado Springs area that ended in injuries. At approximately 7 p.m., on July 15, emergency crews were notified that a child required medical assistance.

Reports from authorities show that a juvenile was utilizing a pool at the Hotel Elegante in Colorado Springs when they began to drown. The child sustained moderate injuries in the incident. EMS rushed to the scene and rendered aid to the child before transporting them to a local hospital for further care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Premises Liability in Colorado

Every year, over one million victims are rushed to area hospitals with injuries from incidents on the property of others. Although many drowning accidents result in superficial injuries, numerous victims are left with overwhelming pain and suffering. In Colorado, we see many people suffer spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, broken bones, and other debilitating injuries in these life-altering accidents. In some cases, negligent property owners can be held accountable for the resulting injuries victims sustain.

The unsettling truth is that many people injured in premises liability accidents are left with life-altering injuries that require immediate surgery and extensive medical treatment. Some victims never truly recover from their injuries and are left permanently impaired. When victims are injured in premises liability accidents, due to the negligence of another party, it is imperative that they reach out to a knowledgeable Colorado premises liability attorney as soon as possible.
