Doctors found the toddler, presumably from Cork, & # 39; very cold & # 39; but resuscitated him until his vital functions improved, reports in the local media.

Reportedly, a doctor and an air ambulance crew spent an hour at the pool to stabilize him before being flown to Alicante General Hospital around 10:30 am.

He is currently on life support where he is surrounded by his destroyed family.

The boy was on vacation with his grandparents in the tourist hotspot when the shocking incident occurred, according to The leader.

It is unclear whether he has fallen into the pool or has decided to play alone.

According to local reports, the vacationer saw the boy and thought it was a doll before he realized it was a child.

The boy is believed to have a weak pulse and was breathing with the help of a gas mask while being transported to the hospital in a helicopter.

The public safety councilor, Ramón López, told the publication that he congratulated & # 39; the rapid action of both the local police and the health center doctor who could stabilize the child despite being without oxygen for some time & # 39 ;.

The judicial police of the vigilante have taken on the investigation.

A Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson said: & # 39; The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade is ready to provide consular assistance to every Irish citizen in need abroad. & # 39;
