The events occurred yesterday just after 9am when a passer-by saw what she initially thought was a doll floating in the water. Investigators believe he may have slipped away from his family and fallen in the pool at around breakfast time.

Paramedics did everything in their power to assist the child and he was rushed to Alicante General Hospital in an unconscious state. However, tragically he lost his battle for life surrounded by his family.

According to the Spanish Press Agency EFE, the reasons for his accidental death are now subject to a police enquiry, having been reported to the court de guardia de Orihuela for further investigation.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is aware of the incident and is providing consular assistance.

Fine Gael Councillor in Mallow John Paul O'Shea said that the family of the young child were not known to him.

"It is a very tough time for everyone and our thoughts and prayers are with the families at this very tough time".

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.

He was given CPR at the scene before being brought to a local hospital.
