The *** drowning of a man and his two children in a resort swimming pool on the Costa del Sol was a “tragic accident”, the hotel owners have said.

The three family members were found unresponsive on Christmas Eve at Club La Costa World, near Fuengirola.

Reports suggest that a nine-year-old British girl got into difficulties in the water and her father and – – year-old brother tried to rescue her.

Police in Spain launched an investigation into the deaths.

In a statement released on Christmas Day the owners of Club La Costa World said: ” The Guardia Civil have carried out a full investigation which found no concerns relating to the pool in question or procedures in place, which leaves us to believe this was a tragic accident which has left everyone surrounding the incident in shock.

“Natu rally, our primary concern remains the care and support of the remaining family members. “

The Foreign Office has said it is supporting a British woman in Spain.

The father and daughter were both British while the brother was American, it is understood.

Local journalist Fernando Torres told the BBC it was a shocking scene.

“The resort workers heard the screaming and they tried to do CPR (resuscitation) as well, but they couldn’t help them,” he said.

“Then the emergency doctors came and they tried for – 90 minutes, but they couldn’t revive them . “
