A HOLIDAYING doctor has saved a three-year-old girl from drowning in a pool.

Anthony Hobbs hauled the unconscious child – on holiday with her family – from a swimming pool in Los Huertos de Nerja urbanisation.

He administered CPR and she regained consciousness. After an examination at Hospital Comarcal in Velez-Malaga, the girl was discharged.

Elsewhere, two police officers saved a two-year-old Russian boy from drowning in a private pool in Mijas.
