He was rushed to Royal Blackburn Hospital where he tragically died a short time later.
Police are assisting the coroner in ascertaining the cause of George’s death, although his passing is not being treated as suspicious.
His family said George loved giving lots of hugs and kisses and was happiest when playing with his twin brother Arthur.
In a tribute, the loved ones said: “George was very loving, caring, funny and always willing to give lots of hugs and kisses, ‘1000 kisses’ he would say.
“He was happiest playing outdoors in the woods or by the river with his twin brother, Arthur.
‘LOVING, CARING AND FUNNY’
“He was liked and loved by everybody who met him. We would ask that our privacy is respected at this time.”
Lancashire Police said: ” We received a call at 7.30pm from the ambulance service to say paramedics were attempting to save the life of a child at an address in Clitheroe.
“George was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital where he tragically died a short time later.
“Police are assisting the coroner in ascertaining the cause of George’s death, however, his death is not being treated as suspicious.”
This comes after a three-year-old boy died after falling into a canal while feeding ducks with his mum last week.
Dylan Milsom tumbled into the icy water in Newbury, Berkshire, just hours before he was due to celebrate Mother’s Day with his social worker mum Shelley Nardini, 36.
She jumped in to try and save her son but was unable to reach him and both were swept downstream by the current before being pulled out by local workers.
Friends and family wrote of the handsome youngster touching hearts – and his infectious “cheeky” personality and smile.
Gran Jackie Arrowsmith posted a picture of her cuddling into the smiling lad and wrote on his mum’s profile: “Love him forever.”
She later posted a heartbroken emoji, adding: “My gorgeous grandson.”
Aunt Claire Arrowsmith posted: “Your beautiful, funny, cheeky little boy. We love you so much.”
