    Seven-year-old boy dies after being found unconscious at Glenbrook’s Jellybean Pool

    Tragedy as missing seven-year-old boy dies after being found unconscious at the bottom of a popular swimming hole

    • Boy has died after being pulled from a popular swimming hole west of Sydney
    • Police and paramedics called to pool in the Blue Mountains on Sunday afternoon
    • The boy was pulled unconscious from Jellybean Pool about 2.45pm by his family 

    A seven-year-old boy has died after being pulled unconscious from the bottom of a popular swimming hole.

    Emergency services were called to Glenbrook’s Jellybean Pool in the Blue Mountains National Park about 2.20pm on Sunday after the child’s parents reported he had been missing for almost half an hour.

    The boy was pulled from the water about 2.45pm by family members.

    Photos taken at the scene showed emergency workers trying to save the boy by the side of the rock pool.

    Police officers from Blue Mountains Police Area Command tried to resuscitate the boy before paramedics took over.

    A rescue helicopter was deployed and medical team was winched down to the scene.

    The child was taken by road to Nepean Hospital in Sydney’s far west in a critical condition and was later confirmed to have died.

    NSW Ambulance duty operations manager inspector Peter Van Praag said paramedics did everything they could to save the boy.

    ‘As the weather starts to warm up it is a tragic and timely reminder to take care when near the water, because in the blink of an eye, everything can change,’ he said.

    ‘Nobody intends for these tragedies to happen, but that’s the thing about accidents – they happen in second – but the impact can remain for a lifetime.’

    ‘Anybody who has experienced the horror of a drowning or near-drowning knows it is extremely traumatic for everyone involved, none more so than their loved ones.’
