Presley Stockton was holidaying with his family when he died at a four-star hotel yesterday afternoon.

The family have said they are living in ‘hell’ after he the British boy was pronounced dead beside the Paradise Park Hotel’s pool in Tenerife.

His family and friends have since taken to social media to pay tribute and describe their heartbreak.

Presley’s granddad posted pictures of the little boy on Facebook , writing: “Today our little P, our little whirlwind Presley has been taken from us.”

He added: “Our family is broken-hearted.

“Fly high my little angel, you were one in a million.”

Another believed-to-be family member wrote: “Been absolute hell for everyone all day.

“Can’t ever live this day down, everyone’s heartbroken.”

She added: “Just want come home, nothing will ever be [the] same.”

A third loved one, in the UK, posted last night: “My heart hurts so much. Sad day today. R.i.P are Presley Stockton! (sic).

“Absolutely devastated. Sending lots of love to all my family. Stay strong… miss you all so much thinking of you all tonight.!!”

The alarm was first raised at around 3.40pm and an air ambulance was scrambled.

It landed on a street near the hotel, which had been cleared by police.

But Manchester lad Presley failed to respond to CPR after going into cardiac arrest.

He was declared dead at the scene.

A police investigation is underway.
