Horror moment tourist drowns after hitting head on water slide at Brit holiday hotspot – and no one in the pool noticed | The Sun

THIS is the horror moment CCTV caught an elderly holidaymaker drowning in a resort pool, as passerbys failed to notice.

Ali Cilga, 65, was on vacation with his family at the five-star hotel in Manavgat, Turkey, when he hit his head going down a water slide.

CCTV footage shows the elderly holidaymaker going down headfirst on the luxury resort's long slide.

Upon entering the water, he smacked his head on the pool's concrete floor and fell unconcious.

Several swimmers passed by obliviously before two tourists eventually noticed him a minute after he went underwater.

Another man – presumably the hotel's on-duty lifeguard – can be seen approaching quickly before jumping into the water.

The lifeguard then laid Ali down next to the pool before starting resuscitation attempts.

The elderly Turkish man – whose hometown has not been revealed by the authorities – was taken to a hospital after the incident on 26th June.

He died one week after the accident, on 3rd July.

Local media reported that Ali was warned by the pool lifeguard not to slide down headfirst.
