Heartbreaking final moments of boy, 5, who drowned at holiday park as one of last pics of smiling child is revealed | The Sun

THIS is the last known picture of a boy who drowned after getting into trouble in a Cornwall holiday park pool.

Little Robin Caliskal, five, grins after helping his parents set up a tent before heading for a swim at Atlantic Reach in Newquay on Monday.

Just hours into his holiday, he would drown after slipping out of sight from his mum and dad because of "low lighting" and "barriers" in the pool.

Emergency services scrambled to the family park but the youngster from Plymouth, in Devon, tragically could not be saved.

Dad Cemal said Robin had been with him in the main pool and asked to go to his mum and six-month-old brother in the baby pool.

Along the way he got into trouble and due to "low lighting" and "barriers" Cemal and mum Ferzane did not notice until it was too late.
