Children out of hospital after pool illnesses

DENVER - Thirteen children have been released from two hospitals after an incident at a hotel swimming pool.

The children were using the pool at the Homewood Suites near 40th and Pena when they became ill, throwing up and complaining about itchy eyes and sore throats. They range in age from 8 to 17 and were a traveling group of Young Marines who spent months raising funds for a trip to the Navajo Nation in Arizona.

The pool is undergoing inspections before it can reopen.
