They said that at around 10.30 am, swimmers spotted the boy unconscious at the bottom of the sea, at a depth of about one metre.
He was brought to shore and life guards came to the spot and administered first aid.

Officers from Germasoyia police station and Limassol CID went to the beach to investigate and have at first sight ruled out foul play.
Police said they are continuing their investigations to determine the conditions under which the accident at sea occurred.
