Valais: The little girl found unconscious in Ravoire has died

Dismay in Valais. The 6-year-old girl who disappeared on Sunday in Ravoire at the end of the day before being found unconscious, died late Monday morning, Valais cantonal police announced Monday.

As a reminder, the authorities were informed of his disappearance on Sunday shortly before 6 p.m. The little girl was taking part in a family celebration in the Ravoire area, a space to rent in the forest, above Martigny. The child was playing near the party and had not been seen since 5 p.m.

In collaboration with its numerous rescue partners, the Valais cantonal police had put in place an important system to find her. At 9:20 p.m., a search carried out in the forest located under the colony of Ravoire made it possible to locate the unconscious little girl. She was then transported in critical condition to the CHUV in Lausanne aboard an Air-Glaciers helicopter, recalls the cantonal police, who do not specify why the little girl disappeared.

According to a sixty-year-old witness cited by the German-speaking newspaper “Blick” on Monday, the little girl was found 100 meters from the cover. On site, the volunteers who participated in the search assumed that she would have been injured while playing hide and seek. The area near the settlement is indeed dangerous because it is steep, with large rocks and deep cracks in the earth, according to the witness.

The Public Prosecutor’s Office, in collaboration with the Valais cantonal police, has opened an investigation to determine the exact circumstances of this event.

The Valais cantonal police were able to count on their numerous emergency partners. Around thirty police officers, around twenty regional rescue specialists, around twenty firefighters from Martigny, Martigny-Combe and Orsières, the OCVS144, the air forces and more than 200 volunteers from the region mobilized to participate in the research.
