A girl died after getting stuck in the swimming pool pipe at the hotel, the concrete wall had to be broken to remove the body.

Houston police are investigating the tragic death of an 8-year-old girl, whose body was found inside a large pipe at the DoubleTree hotel in Houston. The incident happened after 10pm on Saturday night.

A witness told police he saw someone stuck in a pipe in a ‘Lazy River style’ pool.

The victim, identified as Alia Jaiko, was trapped inside a large pipe in the pool, police said. According to the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, Jaiko died of drowning and suffocation, and the death is being ruled an accident.

The girl’s mother, Jose Daniela Jaico, filed the lawsuit, claiming her daughter was pulled through an unsecured hole in the pool, which is about 16 inches wide.

A lawyer on behalf of the girl’s mother said during the news conference that the concrete had to be broken and the pipe cut to get Jaiko out. It was very scary.

Hilton Worldwide Holdings and DoubleTree by Hilton Houston-Brooke Hollow are named as defendants in the lawsuit.

A spokesman for Hilton said the property was operated independently under third-party ownership and had not yet received the legal proceedings.

Meanwhile, the report says that the pool was closed by inspectors after several violations were found.

The pool also did not follow federal regulations that required measures to prevent incidents of children getting stuck and drowning.
