They and The Pattaya News reporters arrived at the scene to find the 4-year-old half-Russian half-Thai girl on the tile at the side of the swimming pool.

The young girl had already been pulled up from the water by her relatives and was rushed to a local hospital where despite the best efforts of rescue workers she was pronounced dead.

The house owner, a 27-year-old Thai woman, whose name was withheld at her request, told reporters that her foreign friend, his Thai wife, and their kids came from Buriram to visit. They were staying at her home for their holidays.
