Mauritius: New tragedy at the Waterpark, a teenager dies
A new tragedy took place on Thursday, October 10, 2013 to the Waterpark of Belle - Mare, in the East of the island, two weeks after the death of an 8 years old girl taken by convulsions following a violent seizure and who drowned in 60 centimeters of water.

A teenager of 14 years, accompanied by his mother and grandmother in a school group at the Waterpark started to vomit right after leaving the water and then suddenly collapsed yesterday victim of a malaise.

The police has opened an investigation to shed any light on this death, as relates the Le Défi Quotidien newspaper.

According to first testimonies, the thesis of hydrocution is put forward to explain the tragedy as the teenager would not have waited for the time required for digestion after lunch to take the plunge.
