A two year old girl died this afternoon following an accident at a nursery school in the town of Betanzos, A Coruña.
The incident occurred at around 13:00. Doctors tried for about an hour to resuscitate the child, who still had a pulse, but were ultimately unsuccessful.
At the time of the incident there were apparently four or five monitors on duty in the school yard. There was a paddling pool in the school yard but it has not been made known whether or not it played any part in the incident.
