THE five-year-old Canadian girl who was involved in an accident at the Atlantis resort water park has died.

Police Chief Superintendent Emerick Seymour said the girl died yesterday, a day after the accident. He declined to identify her or to provide any details about what happened.

Kerzner International issued a statement saying the child drowned and the company was doing "everything in our power to assist the family."

The Aquaventure Water Park at Atlantis has several pools, water slides and a river ride.

In August 2000, a 12-year-old boy died after he was sucked into a drain while snorkeling with his brother in the resort's lagoon.
