The six-and-a-half-year-old boy who was found floating in a Paphos swimming pool earlier this month passed away on Saturday.

Paphos police spokesman Michalis Nikolaou explained that the boy was found floating in the pool in a Paphos hotel where he was staying with his mother.

The boy was rescued by the lifeguard on duty and was taken to Paphos general hospital by ambulance.

The doctors evaluated his condition as critical but stable, with the boy then transferred to the Makarios children’s hospital in Nicosia.

The police spokesman said that the boy died on Saturday, without providing further details.

It is understood that an autopsy is expected to be carried out in the coming days.
