PETITION TO CLOSE CLC POOL AND FOR FULL INVESTIGATION INTO DEATH OF FATHER, 9YO DAUGHTER AND 16 YO SON AT CLUB LA COSTA FUENGIROLA ON CHRISTMAS EVE 24TH DEC 2019!

Dear Friends,

Gabriel Diya, 52, his daughter Comfort Diya, 9, and his son Praise-Emmanuel Diya, 16, died in the pool at Club La Costa World, near Fuengirola.
Police say they are checking claims the young girl got into difficulties and the other two died trying to save her.

After the tragic death of Pastor Diya and two of his children in Spain, a lot of us are distressed by this sad incident and our heart goes out to the wife, their only surviving child and rest of the friends and family of this wonderful people whose lives have been cut short.

NEED FOR FULL INVESTIGATION AND POOL CLOSURE!

We have questions as to how these three people died in the resort pool and why CLC would re-open the pool so soon within barely 48hours after this sad incident and before a full investigation was concluded. The re-opening of the pool is grossly insensitive, disrespectful and shows no regard whatsoever for the deceased and their family members and clearly tampers with the evidence that could have been obtained from the pool.
Clearly a thorough investigation is required given the newspaper reports that:
a) the girl’s swimming cap was found in the pump;
b) the worker who managed to retrieve the bodies reported difficulties in getting out of the pool, describing the effect as being “like swimming in a wild river”.

CLC claimed in a Press Release yesterday that- "The Guardia Civil have carried out a full investigation and gave formal permissions to reopen the pool as they found no concerns relating to the pool or procedures in place". This is very appalling and misleading to the public as Guardia Civil are not qualified to do this, it is not in their remit to do so. Only a full investigation by the right authority can help resolve the many questions and ensure the safety of lives at the resort so that this does not happen to another family.

Apparently, there have been safety concerns raised in the past according to a facebook user by the name Meagan Kelly whose family member witnessed a young boy who almost lost his life at same pool awhile ago. Her facebook post on CLC official facebook page reads. ''Heart breaking news , God love them, cannot believe this pool is open again, this pool is not safe and there is no life guards at any time around this pool, we had to plea with clc to get life guards at the pool when a family member found and had to resuscitate a young boy lying at the bottom of the pool he spent days in a local hospital it took 20mins for a life guard to get from another part of the resort as my niece had to run up to the nearest pool, lifeguard was put on for two days then he was away again, the pool is too secluded not to have a lifeguard it may not be a huge pool but it’s dangerous and should be closed, everyone on these recent posts posting about lifeguards are not needed and other insensitive comments need to realize there has been so many incidents at this pool and complaints about this pool it’s falling on deaf ears, absolutely heart breaking my thoughts are with the family.

Knowing this could happen to anyone and in the interest of justice, we therefore appeal to you to help promote and sign this petition so that CLC can do the right thing by;

1) Closing the pool until a thorough investigation is concluded.


2) Offer apologies to the family of the deceased and the public for re-opening the pool prior to conclusion of full investigation and for their utter insensitivity to the deceased and their family by re-opening the pool less than 48hours after the tragic incident.

3) British investigators from FCO should be sent to carry out independent investigations in Spain. We don’t want the same problem that happened to Madeleine McCann family to repeat itself due to mistakes and carelessness from the Portuguese police at the early stage of the investigation. 

4) Swimming pools in the resort should have standby lifeguards.

5)  All serious swimming pool accidents and incidents should be investigated by independent, unbiased, expert personnel.
