The parents found the child’s body in the pool at 08.15h, according to the Guardia Civil press release.
Facts point to the probabililty that the 2-year-old child woke up before his parents and wandered out to the garden where the pool is.
The family was part of a larger group of nine who had rented the house between them. Six of this group were minors.
Editorial note: you cannot repeat enough that pools, or any body of water, are very, very dangerous and it only takes a couple of minutes for one to kill a toddler – the two minutes that you were distracted by a phone call or somebody at the door. Kids are not safe by themselves, not even ones older – even a 10-year-old who swims like a fish can bang his head jumping in and drown.
