The hotel is near the Town and Country Motor Lodge on Route 28, where an 8-year-old girl nearly drowned Sunday. In that case, a vacationing nurse who stopped there to ask for directions was able to save the girl moments after she was pulled from the pool.

Tuesday’s incident is under investigation.
