The sad event occurred yesterday in Valmayor Reservoir, northwest of Madrid. The bodies of 13 and 14-year-old adolescents were found by a group of divers of the Civil Guard, ten meters away from the shore and eight deep.
Official sources revealed that the girls, who were cousins to each other, were enjoying a day outdoors with a group of family and friends, who saw them cooling one meter from the shore, although the bathing is prohibited in the reservoir.
The families of the two girls requested the repatriation of the bodies to their country of origin, to the city of Guayaquil where their families live. Repatriation is expected to take place during the week.
