The heartbroken daughter of a British woman who died in a banana boat accident in Egypt has paid tribute to her âlovingâ mother.
Janice Bowles, 58, died in front of her daughter after she was flipped from the boat and left trapped underneath, according to the Sun.
Ms Bowles had been staying at the same resort a s a British couple who died of a mystery illness just a week earlier.
Her daughter Annmarie Cox has said she is âbroken insideâ and that the tragic incident on August 28 was a âdevastating shockâ for the family.
In a heartbreaking post on social media, Ms Cox wrote: âIt is with the heaviest heart that I am having to write this status.
âUnfortunately whilst my mum Janice Bowles was on holiday in Egypt, there was an accident and she sadly passed away.
âI am broken inside and donât know how to get my head around it. It is such a devastating shock to the whole family.
âShe was the funniest, kindest, most loving mother I know and if I can aspire to be half the woman she is I know Iâll do my girls proud.â
Ms Bowles, from Bristol, was on a Thomas Cook holiday in the beach resort town of Hurgahada before her death.
The incident occurred just a week after the death of Susan and John Cooper during a stay at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic Hotel in Hurghada.
The couple were also on a Thomas Cook holiday.
