Police are still investigating the death of a 15-year-old girl at Saleapaga last Friday.

The Police’s Media officer, Su’a Muliaga Tiumalu, said matter was reported to the Police outpost at Lalomanu on Friday evening.

The girl had apparently gone with her relatives for a swim at a waterfall in the village at around 5pm.

Su’a said that they suspect she might have dived into the water and hit her head on something solid because according to reports from the hospital, the deceased girl suffered from head injuries.
