Costa del Sol deaths: Police launch investigation after British family death

Spanish police have launched an investigation after the deaths of a British man and his two children in a swimming pool at a holiday resort in the Costa del Sol.

All three were found unresponsive in a pool after the nine-year-old girl got into difficulties in the water and her father and brother reportedly jumped in to try to save her.

The family, including the children’s mother and another child, were on holiday when the deaths occurred at the Club La Costa World resort on Christmas Eve, according to reports.

It is understood that the father and daughter were both British citizens, while the 16-year-old brother was an American passport holder.

The mother of the family was among a number of holidaymakers to raise the alarm following the incident. She is now being questioned by police investigators.

Police scuba divers were deployed to assess the pool, according to local media reports.
