Egyptian police have denied that two lifeguards have been arrested at the holiday resort where five year-old Chloe Johnson died on Friday. Chloe from Forest Hill drowned in a swimming pool while on holiday in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
The family of the five year-old girl who died in a pool yesterday at the Egyptian report of Sharm-el-Sheikh have said they don't want a similar tragedy to happen to anyone else. It's thought Chloe Johnson from Forest Hill may have drowned when a wave machine was turned on. Piers Hopkirk reports.
The general manager of the Egyptian resort Coral Sea Waterworld, where a 5-year-old British girl drowned in the hotel's pool, has said that the Egyptian police and district attorney are working along with the hotel into the investigation. Ashraf Khalil said:
We are also, in collaboration with First Choice, flying in investigators from the UK today. We want to see the facts and the most important fact here is that our hearts and souls are with the family and with little Chloe.
We have moved them from the scene of the hotel so they can at least not be in premises where the accident happened. We are taking care of them so they are not bothered in this time of grief and we wish to express our deepest condolences to them.
We are sorry this has happened. When the investigation concludes we will be able to give answers.
The family of a 5 year old British girl Chloe Johnston who died while on holiday in Egypt say they are "devastated" at their loss - and are demanding to why more wasn't done by lifeguards to help save her life. Chloe drowned in a swimming pool at the Carol Sea resort in Sharm El Sheikh.
