ABERDEEN, Md. — A construction worker is in critical condition after falling into a hotel pool in Aberdeen.

Harford County Fire officials said the incident occurred Monday afternoon at a property at 1007 Beards Hill Road. A search of the street address shows the Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen-Chesapeake House sits at that property.

Fire officials said the man was part of a construction crew working in the hotel’s pool area when he fell 12 feet into the pool. They could not confirm if the pool had water in it or not at the time of the man’s fall. The man was taken to a local trauma center where he was said to be in critical condition.

Aberdeen Police and Maryland Occupation Safety and Health Administration are investigating, as is standard in industrial accidents, the fire department said.
