British Schoolgirl, 13, Dies in Florida Resort Swimming Pool Tragedy – Heartbroken Family Forced to Return Home Without Her, Tributes Pour in for ‘Talented’ Young Rower Who Touched Many Lives



The tragic death of 13-year-old British schoolgirl Anna Beaumont at a Florida swimming pool has left her heartbroken parents, Peter and Elizabeth, and her brother Jake devastated. Anna, described as superfit, was found unresponsive at Discovery Cove in Orlando and sadly passed away the following day. The family, who were on vacation, had to make the agonizing trip back to the UK without her. Anna was an avid cyclist like her father and had raised £900 for charity with an Ironman ride next to him.

Anna was not only a cyclist but also a talented member of a local rowing club with a keen interest in sports. Colleagues of her mother, Elizabeth, who works at Cardiff University, were devastated by her loss. Trevor Wing, Chairman of Llandaff rowing club, described Anna as a lovely and talented young lady who will be greatly missed. Her school, Radyr Comprehensive, where she was in year 8, is mourning her loss just two years after another pupil vanished in the River Taff. The school’s headteacher, Andrew Williams, called Anna a cherished member of their community, and pledged to support grieving students and staff.

The Foreign Office has been in touch with the family to provide consular support during this difficult time. Discovery Cove, where the tragic incident occurred, is an all-inclusive resort that offers guests the chance to swim with dolphins and snorkel among tropical fish. The park, a sister site of SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica Orlando, issued a statement expressing their condolences and stating that their staff had responded to the emergency involving Anna before she was transported to the hospital.

The tragic loss of Anna has left her family, school, and community in mourning, with heartfelt condolences pouring in from all those who had the privilege of knowing her. The devastating news has once again gripped the Radyr community, where Anna was a beloved student and friend to many. The circumstances surrounding her death remain unclear, with authorities in Florida handling the investigation into the cause and manner of her passing.

As the family and community mourn the loss of Anna, memories of her kindness, spirit, and presence will stay with those who knew her. The outpouring of support from friends, family, and the wider community will hopefully bring some comfort to those grieving her untimely death. The tragic incident serves as a reminder of the fragility of life and the importance of cherishing every moment with loved ones. May Anna Beaumont rest in peace, and may her memory live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved her.
