A three-year-old boy who died on his birthday after being found unconscious in a swimming pool in Upavon has been named as Jack Rowe. His parents launched a massive search after he was believed to have wandered off towards a nearby river.
Police and villagers joined in the hunt but, just 20 minutes later, little Jack was found floating in the water of the pool in the garden of a family home. He was unresponsive and given medical treatment at the scene before being flown to Southampton General Hospital by air ambulance.
He passed away just hours later from his injuries.
"We were sitting outside when a young lady came to the fence asking us to keep a look out for Jack as he had been missing for about half an hour.
"With the river being down there (next to the house), we ran down. After that we went around the house, looking through the fields.
"We were all looking when the police came at about 7.20pm. Then we heard a scream and he had been found in the pool.
"How long he had been in there for I don't know. It was unbelievable.
The air ambulance landed in the field opposite their house. The police had been trying to revive him for about half an hour."
