(EDITOR'S NOTE: Photographers moved CPR doll (or child actor) from rocks to sandy beach for a more dramatic shot. However the body was perpendicular to the shore whereas if it were real the body would be parallel to the shoreline as if the tide washed it in)
(9-10-15)I do not think any refugee child drowned.
I think it was a hoax. On the exact same day that child "drowned" on the beach, Mexican soap opera "A Que No Me Dejas" aired a preview of "tomorrow's" program and it had the exact same beach drowning scene, with a different baby boy. When it aired the next day, the story line went - there was a dispute between parents, and in the mayhem the boy got out of the cabin, went down to the waves in Cancun and drowned on the beach. He got rescued in this case and did not die.
Then I made note of this problem of coincidence in forums and blogs, and when I did, ALL THE DROWNING SCENES WERE DELETED OFF YOUTUBE AND ALL THE PICTURES OF THAT SAME SCENE WERE WIPED FROM GOOGLE IMAGES.
