Bereaved families fight for answers from ZambiBush waterpark and police long after the deaths of their children.
It was a warm and sunny day in Pretoria on 29 November 2017 and Elna du Toit and two of her friends decided to take their children to the ZambiBush Resort in Sinoville, north of the CBD.
It was supposed to be a fun-filled day for the children who had just finished writing exams and were looking forward to the Christmas break. But within hours the outing turned into a nightmare when Elna’s son, 10-year-old Aiden, bumped his head while going down one of the resort’s supertube water slides, known as The Toilet Bowl. Despite the efforts of paramedics from a private ambulance service that had arrived to assist, Aiden was declared dead at the scene.
