The Pool at the Comfort Inn and Suites in Triadelphia was shut down by the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department after two children swimming in the water soon after developed skin irritation and a rash.
A family was trying to enjoy time together, but then the unexpected happened. The two children began to have irritated skin and then developed a rash, which landed them in the hospital.
The cause of the rash was the high pH levels of the water.
For the immediate future, the pool will remain closed. Officials plan on draining the pool and refilling it with fresh water, with the hopes of re-opening soon.
