The gas is odorless and, though early effects could cause dizziness and flu-like symptoms, it can go undetected, officials said. The carbon monoxide monitor used revealed that the levels were 16 times the safety limit at 800 parts per million. "I didn't see any movement in their bodies at all".

It is believed the pool's heater was the source of the carbon monoxide.

Two Niles police officers, two Berrien County Sheriff's deputy, as well as one hotel employee were also taken to the hospital after their arrival, but were later released.

ABC 57 says that the hotel has been evacuated and is now being aired out.

"At that level you only have minutes in there before you're going to have health affects", Wise said.

Emergency services rushed to the hotel on Saturday morning after staff found six children lying unconscious on the pool deck.
