Girl, 4, Found Dead In Pool

A four-year-old girl is Fiji’s latest drowning victim after she was found dead last Saturday afternoon in a swimming pool in Suva.

Her body was discovered floating in the pool at a private club where her family was attending a birthday party.

The girl was rushed to the Suva Private Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Police spokesperson Atunaisa Sokomuri said Police had questioned the mother and details were sketchy as to whether the girl was swimming in the pool.

The post mortem results would be conducted today.

This has called for awareness for parents to keep an eye on their children’s whereabouts, Inspector Sokomuri said.

“It is the parents’ responsibilities to keep a watch on their children at all times,” Mr Sokomuri said.

He said creating wareness on water safety cannot be the sole responsibility of the Fiji Police Force.

“Only a parent or guardian can understand their child’s swimming capabilities and it is therefore imperative that they ensure their child is always supervised or are in the company of someone who knows how to swim,” Mr Sokomuri said.
