Two arrested after boy dies at water park in England

Two people have been arrested after a five-year-old boy died following an incident at a water park in the UK.

Leicestershire Police were called to Bosworth Water Park at around 3.50pm on Saturday after a young boy was taken to University Hospitals of Coventry and Warwickshire - where he later died.

A man and woman were detained and are currently being questioned by police about the incident.

"We would ask that people do not speculate about the incident and the circumstances surrounding the death and leave the authorities to carry out their investigations," a force spokesman said.

Officers have asked that anyone who witnessed the incident or those who have footage at the park around the blue lagoon beach to call 101, quoting incident 440 of July 23.

A statement issued on the Facebook page of Bosworth Water Park, reads: "From all of the staff at Bosworth Water Park, we would like to pass on our deepest sympathies to everyone affected by this tragic loss of life."
