This is a terrible thing to happen and shows that you cannot take your eyes off young children where there is water!!!

My heart goes out to the parents, our thoughts are with you!

Two year old dies after falling into Almería swimming pool

It happened on an urbanisation in La Alfoquia, Zurgena this Thursday!

A two year old baby boy has died after falling into a private pool on the Jardín de Almanzora Urbanisation in La Alfoquia, Zurgena.

Full details have yet to emerge, but it’s understood the child had already been rescued from the pool when emergency services were called out to the scene on Calle Gardenia shortly before 2 o’clock on Thursday. All attempts to revive the two year old were unsuccessful.


It is so important to watch over little ones near water!!!

That is indeed a tragedy.

In France pools have to be fenced by law, this law is to be introduced throughout Europe.

It is well documented that most drownings happen while an Adult is present but distracted just for a short time - it is just 2 minutes away.

Kind regards, Dave

What a awfull thing to happen.

I think you will find that, pools here also have to be fenced off, but if the child is within the fenceline, then it only take a seconds lack of concentration for a child to be in the water, even if there are adults present.

What a sad tradgedy.
