The boy was found floating in the Cabo Roig urbanisation pool in Orihuela, Alicante at approximately 9.15am this morning.

Reports of the boy's age tend to differ.

The young lad, believed to be three-years-old, was pulled from the pool of an apartment complex at around 9am local this this morning.

Local reports say a holidaymaker spotted the boy and thought it was a doll before he realised it was a child.

He had eaten breakfast yesterday morning before his family became anxious about his whereabouts.

The emergency services attended and he was airlifted to hospital, the Diario Información media services reported.
