The little Danish child who was rescued from a swimming pool in Coín on Saturday lost his fight for life at the Materno Infantil hospital in Malaga on Tuesday.

The two-year-old fell into the pool at a house in the Sierra Gorda residential development and was rescued by relatives, but did not respond and seemed to be in cardiorespiratory arrest.

The infant was rushed to hospital by air ambulance and admitted to the intensive care unit, but sources at the Materno Infantil say the child passed away on Tuesday afternoon.
