A seven-year-old boy has died after being found unconscious at the bottom of a swimming hole west of Sydney.

The child’s parents called emergency services to Jellybean Pool in the Blue Mountains National Park at Glenbrook at 2.25pm, saying he had been missing for almost 30 minutes.

Police said family members pulled the boy from the water at 2.45pm and officers from Blue Mountains Police Area Command, the Dog Unit and Rescue Squad performed CPR.

NSW ambulance paramedics then took over and a rescue helicopter winched a medical team to the scene.

The child was taken to the Nepean Hospital, but police said he died shortly after arrival.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
