5-year-old boy on holiday at a 4-star hotel dies after complaining of stomach pains

A five-year-old British boy has died in Magaluf after complaining of stomach pains.

The youngster, who was on holiday with his family, began vomiting before collapsing and going into cardiac arrest, according to local media.

Emergency services rushed to the four-star Sol Barbados Hotel where he was staying and reportedly managed to recover the boy’s pulse using CPR.

Police also helped close off roads so an ambulance could get him to Son Espases Hospital in the Majorcan capital Palma as quickly as possible.

Officials have now confirmed he had tragically died at the hospital the same day he was admitted.
