A four-year-old baby British boy drowned yesterday in a swimming pool at a block of apartments in Magaluf. The 112 emergency centre deployed the local police and an ambulance to the scene immediately. As soon as the police reached the scene they started to administer first aid until the para medics arrived and took over. Tragically, despite all the para medics' efforts, there was little they could apparently have done to save the baby boy. The child's parents were obviously deeply overcome by the tragedy and have been provided with psychological help by the 112 emergency service. The Local Police have handed the accident over to the Guardia Civil who will open an inquiry. Yesterday's tragic death takes the toll to four since Sunday in the Balearics. Two people drowned in Ibiza and a 60-year-old man is believed to have had a heart attack while swimming in the sea off the Playa de Muro.
