She was later pronounced dead.

An investigation is underway into what is thought to be a tragic accident.

The drowning happened yesterday at a house in Tunes, Silves.

A police source said today: “A British two-year-old girl died yesterday evening in a drowning.

“The accident occurred in a swimming pool at a property in Tunes in the municipality of Silves.

“The girl’s father took her to a health centre in Albufeira where she was pronounced dead.

“That was around 7pm yesterday.”

There was no immediate official comment from the police.

The family involved is believed to be an expat family.

In July 2018, a British youngster drowned in an Algarve swimming pool.

The child was pronounced dead after being pulled out of the water at a villa on a resort known as the Amendoeira resort near the historic town of Silves.

Emergency responders raced to the scene and practiced CPR on the boy, who had been playing with two brothers, but were unable to save his life.

Medical sources and police confirmed at the time the youngster was a boy despite initial local reports saying the child was a girl.

One police source said the boy was with two brothers and their parents had discovered him when he was already unconscious.
