A five-year-old boy from South Wales drowned in a hotel pool on the Greek island of Kos.

Greek media reported that the tragedy took place on Saturday morning when the boy's parents discovered him unconscious in the lake.
The family is supposed to have stayed at the Atlantica Holiday Village resort in the popular Marmari neighborhood.

ANT1 TV reported on Sunday that the boy's parents found him and pulled his unconscious body out of the pool.
Paramedics and doctors at the local hospital tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate the boy, but he would have died before the ambulance arrived.
His parents are then supposed to have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and to endanger a minor – but were released shortly thereafter in what is described by the Greek police as the usual procedure.

Police on the island of Kos told the sun: & # 39; It is common for relatives to be arrested under such circumstances, but as always, they were not detained and immediately released. & # 39;
Kos is located on the Dodecanese islands in the Aegean Sea, just a few kilometers from the coast of Turkey.
A Foreign Ministry spokesman said: & We support the family of a British child who died in Kos, Greece, and our staff are in contact with the local authorities. & # 39;
Reports show that the family went to the Atlantica Holiday Village resort on a Tui vacation – where many of the rooms have balconies that lead to the pool.
