Fatal umbrella hit at packed public pool

Written By komlim puldel on Sabtu, 15 Desember 2012 | 20.01

A NINE-YEAR-OLD girl died hours after allegedly being hit by a wind-blown umbrella at a school break-up party at a Bundaberg pool.

Police said the child was struck in the head by an umbrella that had blown over at Anzac Pool on Quay Street in Bundaberg about 11am Thursday.

They said the girl was taken to Bundaberg Base Hospital before being later flown to the Royal Children's Hospital in Brisbane.

Police confirmed the girl died at the Brisbane hospital early Friday morning.

Bundaberg mayor Mal Forman said staff had faced a tough time at the pool due to the number of people attending the function.

"From my understanding, the pool had been at capacity on Thursday, with around 360 bathers in the water," Mr Forman told ABC Radio.

"I believe the young girl who was unfortunately killed was sharing a pizza on the lawns with some schoolmates."

The incident is now being investigated by Workplace Health and Safety.

Police are also preparing a report for the coroner.
