A brother and sister from Texas passed away over the weekend after deputies pulled them from the bottom of a local hotel pool.

Just after 3 p.m. on Sunday deputies responded to the Clarion Inn Hotel, on Adamo East, where they found a 12-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl unresponsive after having been pulled from the swimming pool.

Deputies and fire rescue attempted to perform live-saving measures on both children.

The 12-year-old male was pronounced deceased on scene and the 17-year-old female was taken to Tampa General Hospital where she later passed away.

The victims were identified as Sebastano Greco and Kesha Greco, from Dallas, Texas. The siblings were traveling to Tampa with a large church group over Father's Day weekend for a church related function.

Deputies say that the investigation is ongoing.
