Their Majesties King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain have expressed their “deepest sorrow” and sent their “deepest condolences” following the body of a Spanish toddler being found in a well.
A two-year-old boy, Julen Rosello, fell down a borehole two weeks ago, and rescue workers worked tirelessly to rescue the child who was over a hundred metres deep. However, in the early hours of Saturday morning, his remains were found by the miners who were digging a tunnel to get to the little boy in an attempt to rescue him.
A spokesperson for the government of Malaga made the heartbreaking announcement earlier today.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia, who are the parents to 13-year-old Leonor, Princess of Asturias and 11-year-old Infanta Sofía, released a statement today to share their condolences.
On Twitter, Their Majesties said in Spanish, “Nuestro dolor más profundo y nuestro pésame más sentido a toda la familia de Julen. Y nuestro reconocimiento a todas y cada una de las personas que, sin descanso, han demostrado su solidaridad sin límites.”
In English, it translates to, “Our deepest sorrow and heartfelt condolences to the entire family of Julen. And our recognition to each and every person who, without rest, have demonstrated their solidarity without limits.”
