Brazilian girl Laise Pegorini Franzen dies after hair gets stuck in pool drainage system

A 10-year-old Brazilian girl was reportedly killed in a freak accident when her long, curly hair got stuck in the drainage system of her swimming pool.

Laise Pegorini Franzen suffered cardiac arrest Tuesday when she became trapped underwater for a long time at her home in the Sao Cristovao neighborhood of Faxinal dos Guedes in the state of Santa Catarina, according to Newsflash.

Her family rushed her to Hospital Sao Cristovao, where she was declared dead, the outlet reported, citing local news site G1.

“We can’t find the words at this moment to express the pain at losing such a beloved little one, our little Laise,” the tragic girl’s school, the Colegio Integracao in the town of Xanxere, said on Facebook.

“May God comfort the hearts of her parents and brothers. We will miss her every day at our school. Her smile, her way of being that enchanted everyone. You will remain in our hearts forever,” it added.

Laise, who lived with her parents and two brothers, was laid to rest on Wednesday.

Her death has been ruled accidental but the investigation is ongoing.

In a previous swimming pool death, 12-year-old Russian girl Alisa Adamova died 11 days after she was trapped underwater for almost 15 minutes when her arm was sucked into a pump at a Turkish resort in August 2019.
