A 13-year-old girl passed away in the US while on vacation with her family.

The “talented” rower from Cardiff named Anna Beaumont was discovered unconscious in a pool at Discovery Cove in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday.

She was taken to the hospital in a critical condition, according to the local police, but she passed away the next day.

In a statement, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said: “We are sorry to report that on May 29, 2024, 13-year-old Anna Beaumont was pronounced deceased at the hospital.

“Any information about the cause and manner of her death will need to come from the Medical Examiner’s Office.”

The Discovery Cove website describes it as an “all-inclusive day resort” with the opportunity to snorkel among exotic fish and swim with dolphins.

Anna was “a keen rower who had been training hard all winter and was enjoying the recent water sessions,” according to Trevor Wing, the chair of the Llandaff rowing club, of which she was a member.

“She was a lovely and talented young lady and will be greatly missed,” he said.

“All the junior section and the rowing club wish to express their heartfelt condolences to Anna’s family.”

Andrew Williams, headteacher of Anna’s school, Radyr Comprehensive, said: “The very thought of losing a child is an unimaginable journey and I know I speak on behalf of the whole school community when I say that our thoughts are with Anna’s family as they try to come to terms with their loss.

“Anna was a cherished member of our school family, and her absence will be profoundly felt by pupils, staff and all who had the privilege of knowing her.

“Her spirit, kindness and presence touched so many lives.”

The school advised parents to “listen and encourage them to talk about their feelings” and added that staff members would receive training on how to support students in the upcoming weeks.

Following the loss of a child in the United States, the Foreign Office stated: “We are in touch with the family and are providing consular support during this difficult time.”
