In the urban district of Zhengzhou, Henan province, an elderly woman drowned in the pool in the presence of a lifeguard, who is buried in the screen of the phone. It is reported by the tabloid Daily Mail.
The lifeguard was nine metres from the 62-year-old Chinese woman drowning, but did not pay attention to it. The man walked along the side of the pool, staring at the smartphone. 10 minutes later, the visitors called to him for help. The woman got out of the water, but it was too late: she died on the spot.
Relatives of the deceased said that she already was two years retired and was in great shape.
The local authority found that a sports complex does not have a license for the maintenance of the pool. Last month the club was fined for overdue sanitary-and-hygienic certificate. The police investigate and understand the details of the case.
According to the publication, swimming in China is considered a dangerous sport.
