Falah’s family told police they had travelled to the two-story villa from Samut Prakan province in central Thailand for a holiday.

The family were eating at the back of the house while 4 year old Falah was playing in the pool. Relatives said they noticed the child was quiet and when they went to check on him, he was already sinking to the bottom of the pool. Falah’s family quickly got him out of the pool and called for assistance right away.
