Toddler Death – A family was devastated after learning of what happened to their baby while they were napping.
According to official report, an 11-month-old toddler drowned in a private pool while his parents were having a nap inside.
The sad incident happened in a private pool in Calvia on the Balearic island of Majorca on Sunday evening, July 19.
The toddler’s parents were taking a nap when his three-year-old older brother decided to take him outside to play near the pool, says the local news outlet El Diario De Mallorca.
The baby is believed to have fallen into the pool, and the older brother ran and woke up his parents who jumped in the pool and removed their son, although there are no further details as to how it happened.
Immediately, the parents called the emergency services, and while an ambulance was on its way, medics gave them instructions on what to do to keep their baby alive over the phone.
A specialised ambulance unit arrived at the house alongside local police officers and members of the Spanish Civil Guard.
When the paramedics arrived and reached him, the baby still had a pulse, but was unresponsive and rushed to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in Son Espases where the baby sadly passed on, says El Diario de Mallorca.
