Costa del Sol deaths: Mother says ‘something was wrong with the pool’ | UK News



A mother who lost her husband and two children in an accident at a Spanish resort says she believes “something was wrong with the pool” where they died.

Olubunmi Diya said her husband Gabriel Diya, 52, and children Praise-Emmanuel, 16, and Comfort, nine, all knew how to swim – contrary to some reports.

The three died on Christmas Eve at Club La Costa World in Fuengirola, on Spain’s Costa del Sol.

Mrs Diya said in a statement released to Sky News: “I believe something was wrong with the pool that must have made swimming difficult for them at that point in time.”

Previous to Mrs Diya’s statement, hotel operator CLC World Resorts and Hotels said inquiries had found “no concerns relating to the pool in question” and that the incident appeared to be a “tragic accident”.

Sky News has contacted the hotel group for a response to the latest statement.
