A young girl who vanished from a water park close to Windsor is thought to have drowned.
The girl was seen going under the water but “didn’t come back up,” according to a witness who was at Liquid Leisure Windsor water park with her kids.
The mother, who wished to remain unnamed, recalled: “At that point, the lifeguards sprinted over.
She attended a girl’s birthday party with a group of friends.
In case the girl got out of the water and came back to land, guests at the water park were asked to call her name on the sand.
But no one did,” the witness continued. The lifeguards were putting in a lot of effort.
“The ambulance and fire crew arrived at the scene shortly after we were asked to leave the beach after about 30 minutes. A boat for search and rescue, an air ambulance, and a police helicopter were all present.
“I ran into one of the adults from the group the girl had been with, and I asked if there was anything I could do to help, and all she asked was that I pray for her,” the woman said.
“We were waiting to go on things and lifeguards were running all over the obstacles and looking under them,” a second witness told Sky News.
They were searching for her while dismantling the Ninja Warrior near the beach.
In order to find her underwаter, stаff аctuаlly stаrted аsking for goggles from customers.
