The boy, who was on holiday with his parents on the island, was drowned in the pool of a hotel in Marmari area.
The boy reportedly escaped his parents’ attention and went to the pool alone. The child was pulled out of the water without his senses.
According to local media, the child probably woke up earlier than his parents, walked out of the room and dove into the swimming pool.
The boy was discovered in the swimming pool by his parents who also pulled it out of the water, private ANT1 TV reported on Sunday noon.
Paramedics but also doctors in Kos hospital tried to revive the boy, however, their efforts were in vain.
According to the TV broadcaster, the hotel manager but also the boy’s parents have been arrested for setting the life of a minor in danger and for “murder without intent.”
Please, not that several Greek media give the boy’s age as 4.5, 5 or 5.5 years old.
