A TWO-YEAR-OLD Irish boy has drowned in a swimming pool in Spain.

It’s believed that the little boy died after falling off a wall into a neighbour’s pool at around 10:45 local time this morning.

A Spanish news site, the olive press, report that while nobody saw the drowning, police and the boy’s parents suspect he lost his balance and fell.

The father found the son and called police but the child had died by the time the police arrived.

The neighbours reported that they were home but did not see or hear anything.

It happened in an area called Mijas Costa on Spain’s Costa del Sol.

The Department of Foreign Affairs told that they are aware of reports but haven’t been contacted for assistance.
