ARMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Two young sisters from New York vacationing on Cape Cod are in critical condition at a Boston hospital after being pulled unconscious from a motel swimming pool.

Police and paramedics, as well EMTs from a passing Dennis ambulance, responded to the Bayside Resort Hotel in Yarmouth around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The sisters, 9 and 12 years old, had already been pulled from an 8-foot deep section of the pool by other guests and family members but were not breathing.

The girls were revived and taken to Cape Cod Hospital before being flown to Boston Children’s Hospital, where police said they were listed in critical condition.

Police say the girls were being supervised by an uncle at the time. There was no lifeguard on duty.

The investigation into the incident is continuing.
