Gabriel Diya, 52, his daughter Comfort Diya, 9, and his son Praise-Emmanuel Diya, 16, died in the pool at Club La Costa World, near Fuengirola.
Police say they are checking claims the young girl got into difficulties and the other two died trying to save her.
NEED FOR FULL INVESTIGATION AND POOL CLOSURE!
There are questions as to how these three people died in the resort pool and why CLC would re-open the pool so soon within barely 48hours after this sad incident and before a full investigation was concluded. The re-opening of the pool is grossly insensitive, disrespectful and shows no regard whatsoever for the deceased and their family members and clearly tampers with the evidence that could have been obtained from the pool.
Clearly a thorough investigation is required given the newspaper reports that:
a) the girl’s swimming cap was found in the pump;
b) the worker who managed to retrieve the bodies reported difficulties in getting out of the pool, describing the effect as being “like swimming in a wild river”.
CLC claimed in a Press Release yesterday that- "The Guardia Civil have carried out a full investigation and gave formal permissions to reopen the pool as they found no concerns relating to the pool or procedures in place".
This is appalling and misleading to the public as Guardia Civil are not qualified to do this, it is not in their remit to do so. Only a full investigation by the right authority can help resolve the many questions and ensure the safety of lives at the resort so that this does not happen to another family.
Apparently, there have been safety concerns raised in the past according to a facebook user by the name Meagan Kelly whose family member witnessed a young boy who almost lost his life at same pool awhile ago. Her facebook post on CLC official facebook page reads. ''Heart breaking news , god love them❤ cannot believe this pool is open again, this pool is not safe and there is no life guards at any time around this pool, we had to plead with CLC to get life guards at the pool when a family member found and had to resuscitate a young boy lying at the bottom of the pool. He spent days in a local hospital. I t took 20mins for a life guard to get from another part of the resort as my niece had to run up to the nearest pool. A lifeguard was put on for two days then he was away again. The pool is too secluded not to have a lifeguard. It may not be a huge pool but it’s dangerous and should be closed.
There is a petition to sign if you could.
