British 4-years-old boy has drowned in a swimming pool in Kos, Greece, after falling in while his parents were asleep.
The deceased boy and his family were on an airline (TUI) package holiday to the Atlantica Holiday Village resort when the incident happened.
The child who remains unnamed woke up before his parents on Saturday morning and wandered to the pool.
By the time he was found the little boy was already struggling for life, efforts were made to save him, but they were unsuccessful. The boy died before emergency services could arrive.
The parents of the boy and hotel manager were later arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and endangering the life of a minor.
A spokesman for the Greek police said:
“It is common for next of kin to be arrested in such circumstances but as is always the case, they were not held in police custody and were immediately freed.”
