The youngster drowned after falling into a swimming pool at the start of a family holiday in Torrevieja, Costa Blanca. The incident happened at a private house on a residential estate at around 6pm. It is not yet clear if the house on the Rocio del Mar estate was rented or owned.
Paramedics tried in vain to revive the youngster but tragically it was too late. A post mortem will take place today and the police are to investigate.
The British family had just arrived in Torrevieja in the Costa Blanca for a sunny getaway.
