9-year-old boy drowns in hotel pool near downtown St. Louis

UPDATE with the names and address of the boy that drowned and his twin brother.

A 9-year-old boy drowned Saturday afternoon at the Pear Tree Inn on Market Street near downtown, and his twin brother, also pulled from the hotel’s indoor pool, was hospitalized.

Police identified the boy that drowned as Laron Snelson of the 3100 block of Arsenal Street. His brother, Derrone Snelson, is listed in critical and unstable condition at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center.

Hotel guest Kevin Shelton said he had just checked in when he heard screams for help from the pool area, located off the lobby on the first floor of the hotel, at 2211 Market Street.

“Someone asked if anyone knew CPR,” Shelton said. He remembered his training from the Army and ran into the pool area. A hotel employee was working on one boy, and Shelton began mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on the other.

“I was just praying and helping,” said Shelton, 29, of Peoria, Ill. He was in town with family and friends for Sunday’s Rams game.

The boys were in the pool area with other family members, including their mother and a 14-year-old brother, according to police and Shelton.

Shelton said it was a natural impulse to jump in to help. He said he has a 7-year-old daughter and could not imagine standing by while a child is in danger.

Shelton said he tried to console the 14-year-old brother, who was watching as his brothers were loaded into an ambulance. He told the boy to pray.

The case has been turned over to the Police Department’s child abuse division, which is standard procedure in a child death, said Lt. Tony Aubuchon.
