  • Young boy is rushed to hospital after incident in Alicante

The boy, who is the youngest in a family of three from Mallow, Co Cork, got in to difficulty in a pool at the Aquamarina urbanisation pool in Oriheula.

The events occurred yesterday just after 9am when a passer-by saw what she initially thought was a doll floating in the water. Tragically, when he swam closer he realised that it was a small boy.

It is understood that the alert was raised at 09:15 local time on Monday at the Aldeas de Aguamarina Villas in Cabo Roig, about 50 km south of Alicante.

Councillor Paudie Dineen told Cork Beo: "We know the family very well, my wife Sandra grew up with the boy's mother Amanda, they were like sisters".

The paper reports that the boy was with his grandparents and the time and police are investigating the exact cause of the incident.

CPR was administered by a family member before the boy was flown to a nearby hospital by helicopter.
