A SCHOOLBOY from Ireland has died in Spain, after days of fighting for his life in hospital.
The 12-year-old was saved from drowning in a swimming pool, last week Thursday. He was then rushed to hospital in Barcelona.
A team of lifeguards and local police tried to save the boy at the Guitart Central Park Resort and Spa Hotel in the Costa Brava resort of Lloret de Mar, after his sister raised alarm whilst they were swimming together.
The Irish Department of Foreign Affairs, are providing consular assistance to the family.
The boy, who is believed to have epilepsy, has not yet been named.
