AN 11-year-old boy has drowned in a swimming pool in Moraira.
Reports suggest that the young French national, who was suffering from learning difficulties, was on holiday with his family when the tragedy happened in the early hours of Friday morning.
It is understood that the boy got out of bed during the night in the villa he was staying in the Cami Vell del Portet urbanisation in Teulada-Moraira and, for reasons that are being investigated, fell into the pool without anyone being aware of what happened.
The body of the boy was discovered when members of his family got up at their normal time. They immediately raised the alarm but when both the Local Police and paramedics arrived at the scene there was nothing they could do for the boy and certified that he’d probably been dead for at least an hour.
