MALACCA: A four-year-old girl drowned in a swimming pool at a villa located within a recreational centre, near here, this morning.
Hannah Adeena Shaipuddin was believed to have fallen while playing in the area unsupervised.
Her sister discovered her at the bottom of the pool at around 11am after family members had realised she was missing.
Efforts to revive her were unsuccessful and she was immediately sent to Tampin Hospital in Negeri Sembilan, where she was confirmed dead.
It is learnt that prior to the incident, Hannah Adeena, the youngest child of Shaipuddin Shafie and Saripah Gani, was said to have just finished swimming at the pool with her two older sisters Nursyara Adzmin, 16, and Nursyara Batrisya, 13, as well as her older brother Nazhan Yusof, 10.
At the time of the incident, Shaipuddin, 47, was said to have been attending a meeting in Jasin, while Saripah, 41, had been with their eldest child Shafizal Azrin, 18, as he registered for college in Ayer Paabas.
Alor Gajah police chief Supt Umar Ali Saifuddin Shaharudin, when contacted, confirmed receiving a report on the incident, adding that investigations were on-going.
Meanwhile, the victim's sister Nursyara Adzmin, when met, said after playing in the pool, they had all gone back into the villa without realising that Hannah Adeena had gone back to the pool by herself.
"As soon as we realised that she was missing, we searched for her all over the area, but we didn't find her until I looked down into the pool.
"When I saw her at the bottom of the pool, I immediately jumped in and got her out. She was unconscious at the time, so I tried to resuscitate her, but was unsuccessful," she said.
