Family hits out at hotel
Skia was on holiday with her sister, mother, cousin and her aunt at the four-star resort.
Her mother Elisha Williams has hit out at the hotel claiming there was just one guard manning the large pool and that he wasn’t well trained in first aid.
She told the Sun that they had lost track of the child for “just a moment or two” before she fell into the pool.
She claims that the lifeguard never saw Skia until it was late.
However, the hotel manager denied the allegation and said that it happened because the four-year-old wasn’t being watched, Dailymail reported.
