Toddler in pool saved from drowning


An 18-month-old toddler on Thursday was rushed to the hospital after being found floating in the swimming pool of a hotel in Yeroskipou.

The state of his health is now satisfactory, according to an announcement.

According to the head of Paphos criminal investigations unit Michalis Nikolaou, on Thursday at around 8.30pm a couple aged 34, along with their two minors aged 13 and 7, had at some point lost sight of their third family member, an 18-month-old toddler, while at a beach hotel in Yeroskipou.

As they began searching, another hotel resident spotted the toddler floating in the pool.

The child was then pulled out and given first aid by another resident of the hotel resulting in his recovery.

The 18-month-old was then transferred to Paphos hospital A&E for preventive reasons and then to Makarios hospital for monitoring.

At the time of the incident, the pool was closed. Police are further investigating.
