Description of Incident
A five-year-old boy has drowned in a pond in Dublin, Republic of Ireland.

The youngster was discovered in the water in a housing estate in the Tyrrelstown area of west Dublin at about 9.30am this morning.

Emergency services were called to the scene but it is understood resuscitation attempts were unsuccessful.

The drowning is the second in west Dublin in the last fortnight after 13-year-old Ricky Osagie died while rescuing two of his friends on June 20.

They had been swimming in a man-made lake in Waterville Hall in the Blanchardstown area during the recent heatwave when they got into difficulty.
