British boy, 6, 'drowns in pool' near Love Island villa in Majorca after 'parents lost sight of him for a few minutes'

A SIX-year-old British boy has reportedly died in a swimming pool near the Love Island villa in Majorca.

The youngster drowned yesterday afternoon in the pool at the unnamed hotel in the resort of Sa Coma, Spain.

He was on holiday with his family at the hotel, a short drive from the Love Island villa close to Sant Llorenc des Cardassa.

The alarm was sounded around 5.30pm on Sunday.

Local reports said his parents lost sight of him for a few minutes before he was spotted floating face-down in the pool.

Efforts to revive him at the scene were tragically unsuccessful.

Tributes were paid to the 19-month-old boy at his funeral service at a church in Belfast where he was christened before he was buried at a nearby cemetery.
