A 12-year-old girl has died on her Turkish vacation after her arm was sucked into a holiday hotel swimming pool pumping device, trapping her underwater.

Alisa Adamova, from St Petersburg in Russia, was stuck below the surface for almost 15 minutes as tourists – including her own father – desperately tried to pull her free from drowning on August 18.

Guests claim hotel staff in popular resort Bodrum did failed to immediately turn off the powerful pump ‘because they couldn’t find the switch’.

Eventually Alisa was yanked free with a piece of the pump – which supplied water to a pool slide – still attached to her arm.

Holidaymakers then called an ambulance and gave Alisa mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Her heart was finally restarted by paramedics but she died 11 days after the horrific incident.

Russia is demanding that the guilty receive the ‘punishment they deserve’ amid concern over pool safety in Turkey.

Alisa was described as a strong swimmer but her hand and arm was sucked into the pump after she came down the slide at four star Sunhill Hotel where ‘no lifeguard was on duty’, according to tourists.
