Girl (7) who died in Majorca was originally from Donegal

The 7-year-old girl who tragically died during a family holiday in Majorca was from Donegal.

According to reports, the young girl was on holiday with her family when she got into trouble swimming.

The young girl's family had recently moved back to Donegal after living in Northern Ireland.

Her family is currently making arrangements to bring her home. The girl's parents are being supported by grief counsellors.

The tragic accident happened on Monday, June 20th. The young girl reportedly entered the adult swimming pool and then got into difficulty. She also wasn't wearing any armbands at the time of the tragic accident.

A German man pulled the young girl out of the water. Another man, believed to be an ex-British soldier, then performed CPR on her. A nurse also assisted the two men before paramedics arrived.

They rushed the 7-year-old to hospital, but she was already in a critical condition.

Local reports claimed she suffered cardiac arrest at the pool.

She remained in ICU for two days, but was pronounced dead on Wednesday, June 22nd.

The British man who performed CPR on her said he did everything he could to save her.

He told The Sun that he refused to give up and continued compressions.

“I was never going to stop, what if that was my child? No one knew how long she had been in there."

He told the publication that the girl's family was on the first day of their holidays.

"Her mum was absolutely frantic, the dad was trying his best to keep her calm."

We're keeping her loved ones, especially her parents in our thoughts during this unthinkable time.
