The crew members discovered the two children in the pool in the morning and pulled them out  and administered CPR to both but the younger one could not make it through, according to a statement, posted by the cruise officials on the official Facebook page, reveals an associated press report.

The older child was airlifted to the nearby Carteret General Hospital in Morehead City, North Carolina. There is no update available on the condition of the boy yet.

The Norwegian cruise team extended their condolences to the boy's family.
