Doctors were unable to save the young lad after the incident in the Flacq region of the island.

His dad has now paid tribute to the “sweetest boy in the world”.

He wrote on social media: “He was the sweetest, sweetest boy in the world, with the right dose of cheekiness and love.

“He would instantly light up a room and drew everyone towards him with his loving personality.

“In his short four and a half years, he has given us so many memories which we will cherish everyday and I will take the sorrow of his departure to my grave.


“Your baba waits for the day we are reunited.”

The Mauritius Police Force said in a statement: “He was swimming in the hotel’s pool in company of his family members, when at about [2pm] his father noticed that he was having difficulty breathing. He was immediately removed to a safe place.

“All the emergency agencies attended within good [time]. The cause of death was, after an autopsy, certified to be ‘asphyxia, due to drowning’.”

The FCDO spokesman added: “We are supporting the family of a British child who died in Mauritius. Our thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.”
