A young toddler has died in a tragic accident, after falling into an ornamental pool in Herzliya, northern Israel.

The one-and-a-half year old boy died a short while later, despite paramedics' desperate attempts to save his life.

The incident took place in a public garden on Sokolov Street.

Magen David Adom paramedics evacuated the young victim to nearby Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba in critical condition, while performing emergency resuscitation efforts.

Doctors continued their efforts to save his life, but were forced to declare his death shortly after his arrival.

MDA paramedics Omri Dahari and Orin Cabaha described the tragic scene.

"When we arrived at the site we saw on the grass close to a pool a toddler, around one-and-a-half years old, unconscious with not pulse or breathe, after having been pulled from the water.

"We performed advanced resuscitation efforts and transferred him to the ambulance for further life-saving treatment. We continued on until the hospital; his condition was critical."
