A seven-year-old girl has died in hospital two days after being pulled from a hotel pool in Mallorca.

After being rescued from the pool at the hotel where she is believed to have been staying, the girl was resuscitated and taken to the intensive care unit at Palma’s Son Espases hospital.

Hospital sources in the Mallorcan capital said she died this afternoon.

A routine police investigation is underway into Monday’s incident at the four-star HYB Eurocalas hotel in the east coast resort of Calas de Mallorca.

The girl, believed to be Irish, was taken to hospital “in critical condition” with police clearing a path for their ambulance to get her there as soon as possible.

A spokesman for an emergency coordination center run by the regional government had said on Tuesday: “We took a call around 3.40pm on Monday to say that lifeguards had spotted a young girl lying motionless on the bottom of the pool and had submerged, to save her.

“They performed CPR on her after pulling her out of the water because she went into cardiac arrest.

“Paramedics continued to try to revive her after they reached the scene and got her breathing again in the back of the ambulance.

“She was taken to Son Espases Hospital.”

The tragedy came less than a month after six-year-old Corey Aughey, from north Belfast, died in hospital in the Mallorcan resort of Sa Coma after falling into the swimming pool at the hotel where he was staying with his family.

In May, a British toddler drowned in a swimming pool accident on the Costa Blanca.

Freddie Joseph Briggs died in the pool at his childhood home in the village of Aigues, near Benidorm, on May 25, prompting the local council to declare a three-day mourning.

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