Police investigating the incident at The Splashes, just north of the A47 in Swaffham, said there did not seem to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding Monday’s incident, which is believed to have involved a paddling pool.

The ambulance service was called at 4.34pm, and an air ambulance spokesman said its paramedics treated the child for what they believed were brain injuries caused by a lack of oxygen while he was in water.

The air ambulance took the boy to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, and he was later transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
