UK investigators flying out to probe Egypt pool death

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.
