Cordova News

Hotel safety measures are under scrutiny following the tragic drowning of a children at a Cordova, TN hotel pool early Thursday morning, June 27, 2024.

As reported by LocalMemphis.com, “Memphis Police said they were called to the Comfort Suites in Cordova shortly after midnight Thursday, June 27, 2024. They said they received a medical call indicating a four-year-old girl had fallen into a swimming pool.”

Fox13Memphis.com is reporting, “the young girl fell into an indoor swimming pool.” A guest at the hotel “immediately went to the pool and saw the girl unresponsive…she gave the little girl CPR for 20 minutes before medics arrived.”

According to the report, “[d]espite their efforts, police said the the girl later died at the hospital.”

The investigation is ongoing.

Our Legal Take

Hotel guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of safety provided at the pool on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • What safety measures were taken by the hotel owner and management to protect guests at the pool? 
  • Is the pool in compliance with federal and local laws and regulations.
  • Was life-saving equipment such as life rings and reaching poles easily accessible.
  • Were water safety rules posted in a visible area for adults and children to review?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the hotel owner and management failed to provide adequate safety measures to protect those on its premises, the family of the child may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for the children’s wrongful death.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling safety negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent safety case, it is imperative that the family of the child retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
