Family's plea after hotel pool drowning

The family of a County Down man who drowned in a swimming pool in Portugal is urging the public to follow the RNLI's drowning prevention advice.

William Coates, 29, was found at the bottom of the pool shortly after arriving at a hotel with his friends last May.

Doctors told his family they believed he had suffered a heart attack brought on by cold water shock.

The family is backing the campaign by lifesaving charity Respect the Water.
