Kelan Logan-Derench: Family 'absolutely broken' after five-year-old British boy dies while on holiday in Egypt

A five-year-old British boy has died after falling into a swimming pool while on holiday in Egypt.

Kelan Logan-Derench from Sutton Coldfield in Birmingham was on his first holiday abroad when he had the "tragic accident" on Saturday 25 November.

The boy was on holiday with his mother Ciara, elder sister Cienna and his grandmother at the time.

Serena Whitehead, a friend of Kelan's mother, has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to bring him back to the UK and pay for his funeral.

She wrote on the page: "Kelan had a tragic accident and fell into the swimming pool and heartbreakingly nothing could be done to save him and he sadly lost his life.

"Kelan was a cheeky, mischievous, happy little boy, he was a younger brother to Cienna and was about to become a big brother himself in February 2024."

Ms Whitehead added that Kelan's family were "absolutely broken" after the boy's death.

The page, which was created on Sunday, had raise more than £12,000 of its £15,000 target as of Monday morning.

An FCDO spokesperson said: "We are supporting the family of a British child who died in Egypt."
