  • An off-duty police officer carried the boy to the nearby Axarquía hospital

A three-year-old boy was saved from drowning in a private pool on Wednesday thanks to fast-acting lifeguard, a health centre worker and an off-duty police officer.

The boy was said to be unconscious and unresponsive when the lifeguard pulled him out of the pool.

The off-duty police officer carried the boy in his arms to the nearby Axarquía hospital where he is reported to have made a good recovery.
