Holidaymakers said the resort’s sub-tropical swimming pool was closed due to a “serious medical incident”.
One person staying at Center Parcs for Christmas told the PA news agency: “Thankfully we didn’t see anything. We noticed a big crowd all leaving the plaza.
“We were headed back to our lodge to have lunch before swimming. I checked my phone and saw the pool was closed due to an incident.
“Obviously that’s all we knew originally.
“The plaza is all open, the parc market, gift shops, etc – there is just a temporary barrier across the entrance to the pool itself.”
Center Parcs issued a statement on the day which said: “We are deeply saddened by the tragic news that a young guest has passed away at Longleat Forest today,” it said.
“We are offering our support to the family and to our employees who provided immediate assistance.
“Our thoughts remain with the family at this very difficult time.”
The pool was reopened on Christmas Day morning, Center Parcs confirmed.
