New Date For Inquest Into Death Of Chinese Student

There's a new date for the inquest into the death of 17 year old Yi Fan Wang at the Aquatic Centre in September of 2011. 

It will be held from May 21st through the 24th at the Sydney Street Courthouse. It had been scheduled to start on April 8th. 

Wang was swimming in the pool with some friends when something happened to him. He was taken out of the swimming pool but died two days later at the Regional Hospital's intensive care unit. 

It remains unclear what happened that afternoon which is why the inquest was called to look at the circumstances and come up with recommendations.
