British Boy Drowns In Spain Pool Tragedy
A three-year-old British boy has died after falling into a swimming pool during a family holiday in Spain.
Relatives reportedly tried to save the youngster after they discovered him floating in the water at his grandparents' home in Cartama, near Malaga.
But the child is said to have died in a car before he could reach hospital on the Costa del Sol.
His death came on what has been dubbed Spain's "Black Sunday" after another two people reportedly drowned in the sea.
Around an hour after the boy's death, a 50-year-old man was found floating in the sea off the coast of Torrox.
And earlier in the day on the Costa Azahar a Romanian woman, aged 46, drowned off the coast of Castellon.
The Foreign Office said officials were supporting the British child's family in Spain.
A spokesman said: "We are aware of the death of a British national in the Malaga region of Spain.
"We are providing consular assistance to the family at this sad time."
