An interview with investigators revealed that an elementary school girl died in a pool in Nerima-ku, Tokyo on the 15th, and that the girl was found near the middle of the playground equipment that floated in the pool. The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the detailed situation, thinking that it may have been drowned by the buoyancy of the life jacket that it was wearing.
On the afternoon of 15th, Yuka Morimoto (8), a third grader in elementary school in Asaka, Saitama, died in the pool of Toshimaen, an amusement park in Nerima-ku, Tokyo.
According to investigators, Mr. Morimoto was discovered during a regular inspection by the observer, and was found in a prone state near the middle of the playground equipment such as a mat that floated on the surface of the pool.
This pool has a depth of nearly 2 meters, so it was supposed to wear a life jacket and Mr. Morimoto was wearing it.
The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the details of the situation after entering the playground equipment for some reason and then being pressed against the playground equipment by the buoyancy of the life jacket.
