Couple Collapses as their children drown in swimming pool

27 June, 2022

An unnamed couple has been left inconsolable after the death of their three children in a swimming pool on their estate in the Ajah region of Lagos State.

When the three kids left their home to swim in the pool, reports deduced that the husband and wife had left for an event.

However, it was discovered that some locals, including the estate's security personnel, discovered the kids laying lifeless in the pool.

According to an eyewitness, the kids were taken to a local hospital where their death was verified as soon as they were taken out of the pool.

The eyewitness said “The incident happened on an estate in Ajah. The estate has a pool generally accessible to residents. The three siblings were the only children of their parents. When their parents left home for an event, they went to swim at the general pool and drowned.

“The Chief Security Officer of the estate was part of the people that found the children unresponsive and quickly rushed them to a hospital, where they were confirmed dead. They also quickly alerted the Ajah Police Station and also informed the parents that something urgent that required their attention had happened, but didn’t disclose what happened to their children.

“So, the parents quickly aborted their outing. It was when they met the CSO and others that they were informed that their children drowned. Upon hearing that all their three children had died, both husband and wife fainted and were rushed to a hospital, where they were revived.

“The children are all girls; the first child was 14-year-old; the second child was seven-year-old and the third child was three-year-old. The incident happened towards evening.”
