A representative for the Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Rescue Service said they received a call about a child drowning in a pool villa house in the posh Pratumnak region of Pattaya City.

"At the scene, the father and mother carried the body of a two-year-old boy and asked for help at the entrance of the villa. Rescue workers tried to help and pumped the heart to try and save his life," a spokesperson from the rescue service team said.

"His father and mother were weeping and crying not far away, before the officers urgently transported the child to the hospital. Initially, the medical team provided the best assistance but were unable to save the child's life," he added.
