  • Irish Boy Fighting For Life Af

An Irish boy has died after he was found unconscious in a swimming pool while on holiday in Spain.

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 has been named by local media as James Greene and is due to turn four in December.

The boy was apparently spotted falling in by neighbours, who then contacted emergency services.

Officers reportedly found him "very cold" but were quick to react to the situation.

An air ambulance crew later arrived and worked on the child for two hours to stabilise his condition.

He was then airlifted to Alicante General Hospital after medics worked by the pool for almost two hours to stabilise the young boy.

The boy is now in a critical condition in Spanish hospital.

His family, who are with him at the hospital, are believed to be from Cork.

A lifeguard was not believed to be on duty at the time of the incident.

He had eaten breakfast yesterday morning before his family became anxious about his whereabouts.

The Department of Foreign Affairs said it is "aware of the the case and is providing consular assistance".
