Daughter of couple who died on holiday still looking for answers


The daughter of a Burnley couple who died while on holiday in Egypt is still searching for answers a year after their deaths.

Today marks 12-months since John and Susan Cooper died after reporting a strange smell in their Hurghada Hotel room.

Their daughter, Kelly Ormerod, who was on holiday with them says she still has no official cause of death and has accused the Egyptian authorities of a cover-up.

A Thomas Cook spokesperson said:

Our deepest condolences remain with Kelly Ormerod and her family after the tragic deaths of her mum and dad, Susan and John Cooper last year.

A number of important questions remain unanswered surrounding the circumstances of their deaths. We are cooperating fully with the Coroner’s investigation and the Steigenberger Aqua Magic remains off sale to any of our customers, from the UK and the rest of Europe, indefinitely.

We continue to offer support to Kelly Ormerod and her family.
