A FIVE-year-old British boy has died in Spain after becoming violently ill at a four-star hotel.
The youngster had been on holiday with his family in Magaluf when he began vomiting before collapsing and suffering a cardiac arrest.
Emergency services were called to the Sol Barbados hotel and managed to resuscitate the boy using CPR before transferring him to hospital.
However, officials have today confirmed the boy died the same day at the Son Espases Hospital in Palma having arrived in a ‘critical condition.’
The boy had been complaining of stomach pains and vomited before he collapsed, according to Mallorca paper Cronica Balear.
Officials have not confirmed if a routine court investigation has been launched, which would be normal practice after the death of a child.
At this stage there is nothing to indicate there was foul play involved in the boy’s death.
