A five-year-old boy has died in a suspected drowning at a water park.

It has been claimed in the Mirror that another boy aged 11 found the five-year-old drowning victim in a lake while searching for his lost goggles in the water.

Bosworth Water Park in Warwickshire posted on Facebook: 

"Police were called at 3.50pm this afternoon (Saturday 23 July) to Bosworth Water Park, Market Bosworth, after a young boy was taken to hospital. 

The five-year-old boy was taken to University Hospitals of Coventry and Warwickshire where he subsequently died.

An investigation is underway into the circumstances surrounding the death.

We would ask that people do not speculate about the circumstances surrounding the death and leave the authorities to carry out their investigations. 

From all of the staff at Bosworth Water Park we would like to pass on our deepest sympathies to everyone effected by this tragic loss of life".

Bosworth Water Park is a 50 acre leisure park with 20 acres of lakes, popular for family days out or weekend camping trips
