A little boy who died on holiday with his family in Greece has been named.
Theo Treharne-Jones is thought to have died at the Atlantica Holiday Village resort on the Greek island of Kos on Saturday.
The five-year-old from Merthyr Tydfil attended Greenfield School in Pentrebach.
Merthyr Tydfil Council leader Kevin O’Neill said his “thoughts and prayers” are with Theo’s family and siblings who also attend schools in Merthyr.
“It is with great sadness that the local authority has heard of the death of one of its young pupils – Theo Treharne-Jones – whilst on holiday on holiday with his family on Kos,” councillor O’Neill said.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this tragic time.
“The local authority will be supporting the staff at Theo’s school and his fellow pupils as well as supporting the schools which his siblings attend in the county borough.”
Wayne Murphy, head teacher of Greenfield School said: “I am aware of these tragic events and the loss of this lovely little boy, who brought laughter and happiness to everyone.
“Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to the family and friends at this tragic time.”
Holiday operator Tui yesterday confirmed the family had been staying at the Atlantica Holiday Village in Kos, Greece.
A spokeswoman said a team at the resort were supporting the family and the incident is under investigation.
A Foreign and Commonwealth Office official said yesterday: “We are supporting the family of a British child who died in Kos, Greece, and our staff are in touch with the local authorities.”
