Brit girl, 3, dies after ‘turning yellow’ on tragic Thomas Cook holiday

“To lose a child under any circumstances is horrific, to lose a child whilst on a family holiday when it should be a time of joy and love is hard to even fathom”

A sum of more than £4,000 has been raised through a GoFundMe page.

The page read: “Without any explanation a three-year-old beautiful happy baby girl was taken from a kind loving family.

“Lily passed away with absolutely no warning whatsoever and there was no way of preparing for the loss.

“To lose a child under any circumstances is horrific, to lose a child whilst on a family holiday when it should be a time of joy and love is hard to even fathom.”

The inquest heard she was suffering from “yellowing” of her skin before her death, which is also known as jaundice.

The dad said he was given over-the-counter painkillers before her death.

Assistant coroner Professor Robert Forrest said: “The evidence of poor food safety at the hotel and the possibility that Lily died as a consequence of a food-related illness provides justification for additional enquiries of Thomas Cook and the disclosure of both food safety audits and the additional report outlining areas of improvement.”

The coroner added: “The important thing is to try and find out what the cause of death was and everything else hinges on that.”

Thomas Cook said in a statement: “Our deepest condolences are with the family after the heartbreaking death of their daughter on holiday last year.

“We have provided the Coroner with all the information we have been able to gather from the hotel and healthcare facilities.

“The cause of death remains unclear. We continue to support the Coroner and the family in any way we can and await the outcome of the inquest.”

Daily Star Online has approached Bodrum Holiday Resort for a response.
