Triadelphia, W.Va. (AP) -- Firefighters say a chlorine leak at a hotel's indoor swimming pool in Triadelphia sickened nine people, including three children.
None appear to have been seriously hurt.
Gregg Warren, a spokesman for Wheeling Hospital, says a family from Lorain, Ohio, with 3- and 5-year-old children was treated Wednesday night and released.
A spokeswoman for the Ohio Valley Medical Center did not immediately return a message Thursday about five patients taken there.
The leak happened Wednesday at the Comfort Inn.
Fred Misenhelder, a spokesman for the Valley Grove Fire Department, says the victims were near the pool when they began to experience burning eyes, sore throats, nausea and vomiting.
Firefighters recommended medical treatment as a precaution.
