A young child has been left fighting for his life following an incident at the Heathrow/Windsor Marriott hotel on Ditton Road, Slough.

Emergency services were called to the hotel at around 6.35 on Saturday, February 25 after a four-year-old boy was found unconcious in the swimming pool.

The boy was removed from the pool by a relative and hotel staff performed CPR while they waited for the emergency services to arrive.

Three ambulance officers were sent by south central ambulance service and the boy was given medical treatment at the scene.

He was then taken to Wexham Park Hospital by ambulance before being transferred to John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.

He remains in a serious condition.

Paul Davies, manager of the Heathrow/Windsor Marriott, said: "We became aware of an incident in the pool area involving the child of one of the guests staying with us on the Saturday evening. 

"We immediately contacted the emergency services who arrived in a matter of minutes and took over the situation.

"The thoughts and prayers of the hotel staff remain with the family."
