Police said the tourist had been staying in a room on the hotel’s seventh floor with her daughter since Tuesday and was due to check-out on Wednesday morning.

Police sent her body for autopsy, checked CCTV footage and interviewed witnesses. Their initial inquiries revealed that the woman had come down to walk around the swimming pool during the rain overnight. She may have fainted or slipped, falling into the cold pool, they said.
