Yep.Not just a developing country, I'm pretty sure it happened in Ireland in recent years. I think that's far more likely than a fanciful death pact.
There are some similarities in these incidents, sure. However you would expect, unlike in accident in the probably fairly isolated location of a septic tank on a farm, the victims in a hotel swimming pool would have had immediate assistance with nothing more than water to contend with.Yep.
Septic tank fumes may have caused the deaths of a father and his two sons in a farming accident in Co Down last night.
The victims have been named as 22-year-old Nevin Spence, who played rugby for Ulster, his 30-year-old brother Graham and their 52-year-old father Noel. A daughter, Emma, was rescued at the scene and is being treated at Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital.
Emergency crews went to the family farm in Drumlough Road outside Hillsborough in Co Down shortly after 6pm yesterday following reports that four people had fallen into the tank.
Yep - decades ago swimming pools used by schools seemed to have virtually neat chlorine in them.I remember when there was too much chlorine in the pool once, they all came back with very red eyes and it can send you a tad woozy.
Something is not quite right here, its cause of the fact it is three people, makes no sense
The excuse given was that the amount of chlorine wasn't actually excessive.Yep - decades ago swimming pools used by schools seemed to have virtually neat chlorine in them.
What a telling comment. British lifeguards are trained in pool maintenence as well as life-saving techniques like CPR. They don't make much more than the minimum wage even though they're expected to do all that.He added that, had there been constant supervision, Mr Diya "wouldn't have had to jump in" and called it "a simple thing of paying somebody a standard minimum wage".

A heating pipe burst Monday in a small Russian hotel, flooding rooms with boiling water that killed five people and left six others injured in the central city of Perm, emergency officials said.
The nine-room hotel was located in the basement of a residential building in the city of 1 million people near Russia’s Ural Mountains. All of the victims — who included a child — were staying at the hotel, authorities said. Three of the injured were hospitalized with burns.
Russian police have opened a probe into the tragedy.
The plumbing explosion left 20 buildings, including a hospital, a school and a kindergarten, without heat or hot water in the middle of winter, local authorities said.
Russian lawmaker Oleg Melnichenko said, given the deaths, the Russian parliament might consider a ban on having hotels or hostels in the basements of residential buildings.
“Hostels shouldn’t be open in basements, where all pipelines are located,” Melnichenko said. ...
Coincidence- I was born in Bispham and over 55 years later spend most of my time about a mile away.I sadly recall this from being a kid. I had family live in Bispham so it was really big news when it happened: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-20892279

A 33-year-old California woman is dead after her clothing got caught in a machine at a raisin processing facility in Fresno County.
Yaneth Lopez Valladares had worked at the Del Rey Packing Co. for two years before the incident Friday, the Fresno County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.
A piece of her clothing got caught in the machine used for processing raisins and she was "severely injured," the statement said. Two other employees were nearby and immediately powered down the machine, but she died at the scene.
"We are in deep sorrow," Del Rey Packing Co. President Gerald Chooljian said in a statement.
The Department of Occupational Safety and Health is investigating the incident.
For comparison, the biggest calibre of naval gun in WW2 was the Japanese 18.1" gun capable of firing an armour piercing shell weighing 1.43 tons up to 26 miles (40 km). Wikipedia says the "effective firing range" was rather less at 16 miles (25 km). Presumably it was ineffective because at that distance the shell would cause "merely a scratch."Bloody hell - blowing a one ton object 3 km is almost unbelievable.
