“The boy was in a serious condition and Rescue Care Advanced Life Support Paramedic stabilised the child on scene before rushing him through to a nearby hospital for the further care that he required.”

Jamieson said the exact circumstances leading up to the child falling into the pool were unknown. Authorities were on the scene.
