Five die from electrocution at Turkish water park
The three children were killed after an electrical current caused the pool to go live in the town of Akyazi, Sakarya province, the state-run Anadolu Agency reported.
The park's manager and his son were killed when they dived into the pool to try to save the flailing children.
All five were rushed to a hospital in Akyazi, but could not be saved. A sixth person was also hospitalised but authorities did not provide further details.
Private NTV television said the children were aged 12, 15 and 17.
Gendarmerie officers were conducting an investigation into what caused the electrocutions, Dogan reported.
Television video showed ambulances waiting outside the water park and several people gathered outside the Akyazi State Hospital.
