(KSNW) A young girl is recovering after a near drowning in a hot tub at a hotel in Newton, Kansas. 

"My sister got stuck in this hot tub at Red Coach, she's stuck in the thing, and she's like, drowning," the girl's sister says in the 911 call.

When the dispatcher asked if the girl could breathe, the sister responded, "She's like underneath the water in the hot tub and she's drowning."

The girl was rushed to the hospital and is now recovering at home.

Managers at the hotel about the situation but they declined to comment and corporate ownership also did not respond to requests for more details.

There are still questions about what happened, but the 911 call shows that something, either her hair or a strap from her bathing suit, got caught and held the girl underwater.
