A six-year-old girl drowned in a swimming pool at Capital Kids near Gateway Mall in Lilongwe on Monday this week.
She has been identified as Nicole Banda.
Nicole was in the company of her sibling and their father.
After some minutes of their relaxation, the father who is a Business Development Manager at World Vision Malawi, left for shoprite to buy drinks.
On his departure, he informed one of the workers at the place to monitor the kids since they were still playing.
However, upon return from shoprite, the father was surprised to notice that one kid was nowhere to be seen.
After searching, she was found under the pool in a helpless state
and was rushed to ABC clinic where she was pronounced dead upon arrival.
