Posted: Updated:
YARMOUTH, Mass. (WHDH) - Two young sisters from New York vacationing on Cape Cod have been flown to a Boston hospital after they were 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 girls, 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.

They were revived and taken to Cape Cod Hospital in Barnstable before being flown to Boston Children's Hospital because of the seriousness of their condition.

Authorities said an uncle was with the girls at the pool at the time of the accident. There was no lifeguard on duty.

According to Yarmouth Police, both children were at Children's Hospital Thursday in life-threatening critical condition.

Investigations into the incident will continue.
