A six-year-old British girl was pulled from a hotel pool in Spain 50 minutes after a lifeguard had clocked off. 

Police have since launched an investigation into the incident at Granada Park Aparthotel last week.

Investigation Is Going on

The horror unfolded on May 9 at around 6.50pm in Los Cristianos, on the southwest coast of Tenerife.

Investigators are now working to establish where the young girl’s parents were at the time, and why there was no lifeguard present at the pool, local reports said.

Emergency services received a call requesting medical assistance for the girl who had been rescued from the pool by several other guests and staff.

According to Canarian Weekly, the girl was conscious and very scared when a nearby police unit arrived at the scene.

The girl appeared to be drowning when rescuers stepped in to pull her from the pool.

The rescuers are reported to have performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on the girl as soon as she was pulled from the water. 

Police said that ‘within moments’, two motorcyclists and two patrol vehicles arrived at the scene, along with a doctor and a first aider. 

Ambulances then took the girl to a nearby medical centre

There, she was diagnosed with aspiration pneumonia, which is caused by someone inhaling liquid into their respiratory tract of lungs.
