The boy from Heiloo was rescued from the waves at Egmond aan Zee and taken to hospital where he was declared dead and his parents informed. However, during a final attempt to revive him, his heart started beating again.
The youngster has been fighting for his life in hospital in Amsterdam since then. It is unclear when he actually died but one source suggested it may have been Tuesday.
