International: 11-year-old schoolgirl dies at theme park accident

An 11-year-old girl, Evha Jannath tragically died after falling from a ride into the Splash Canyon river rapids at Drayton Manor theme park in Staffordshire, United Kingdom. 

She was on a trip to the theme park with her school, Jame'ah Girls Academy private school in Leicester and was said to have 'nearly missed out on the school trip because she did not have the right clothing' and had to borrow from the school. 

It was reported that she stood up to switch seats just as the ride hit a rock, and fell over into the five (5) foot deep water.
