The child, aged 18 months, was rushed to hospital critically injured yesterday morning.

Police are now investigating the circumstances surrounding the tragedy. They have made no official comment but have confirmed the parents are British.

One source said it was believed the child had died in a tragic accident - possibly while the youngster's parents were still sleeping - but the investigation was ongoing. It is being conducted by the Polícia Judiciária.

The alert was sounded around 9.30am on Saturday. The boy's parents were both believed to have been in the apartment, near the entrance to Lagos, at the time.

Neither the parents or their child has been named.

The youngster was rushed to Portimao Hospital before being transferred to the Algarve University Hospital Centre in Faro.

A source said today: 'Unfortunately the child was not able to overcome his serious injuries.'

A neighbour said: 'I heard a young man, who practised first aid on the youngster, screaming.

'The neighbour on the first floor came to the window. He then went to knock on the parents' door and the mother came to the window and saw her son lying on the ground.'
