A mother and son and their family friend who died after getting into difficulty in Loch Lomond have been named.

Edina Olahova, 29, and her son Raza Haris Ali, nine, died alongside their friend Mohammad Asim Raza, 41, on Saturday evening.

Mr Raza’s seven-year-old son is currently in intensive care at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.

Ms Olahova’s husband and Rana’s father were on a trip to Pulpit Rock, just south of Ardlui.

Pictures taken hours before the tragedy show the two families laughing as they posed for the camera near the banks of the loch.

Rana could be seen helping an adult steer a boat as they enjoyed a sunny day out on Scotland’s largest loch.

Police Scotland said it was called to reports of concerns for people’s safety in the water at about 6.40pm on Saturday.

Their families were made aware and the case will now be sent to the procurator fiscal – which investigates all sudden deaths in Scotland.

A total of six people have died this weekend in Scotland after getting into trouble in water.

Earlier on Saturday afternoon, an 11-year-old died after being found in a river at Alexander Hamilton Memorial Park in Stonehouse, South Lanarkshire.

Just after that, a 13-year-old boy got into difficulty in a river in Hazelbank, South Lanarkshire, and his body was recovered from the water on Sunday.

And on Friday, a 16-year-old boy also died at Loch Lomond, at the Balloch Country Park.
