Family files lawsuit after missing 8-year-old Aliyah Jaico found in swimming pool pipe in Northwest Houston

HOUSTON – The family of 8-year-old Aliyah who drowned at a Doubletree hotel Saturday night has already filed a lawsuit demanding at least one million dollars from the Hilton-branded hotel. Initially reported missing around 5:45 p.m., she was not found until 11:30 p.m. later that night when she was found inside a pipe that was connected to the lazy river-style pool.

According to the lawsuit, “A team was then put together to drain the pool and video cameras were attached to 20-foot poles to inspect the pipes when her body was discovered wedged in the pipes of the malfunctioning pool equipment.”

The case is filed in Harris County District Court under Cause No. 202419020- 7.
