An inquest into the death of a seven-year-old girl at a swimming pool near Beccles is scheduled to take two days.
Maya Kantengule was pulled unconscious from the water at the Waveney River Centre, in Burgh St Peter, on Sunday, May 1 last year.
An inquest review held at Norwich Coroner's Court on Monday heard how she had been at a pool party at the time.
Area Coroner Yvonne Blake said there were only parents keeping watch and for reasons unknown, Maya was found unconscious in the pool.
The Dell Primary School pupil, who lived at Smiths Walk, Oulton Broad, was taken to the James Paget University Hospital, but died later that day.
