Four drown off Spanish beaches in one day

A BLACK day on Spain's beaches saw four people drowning, a 14-year-old girl and three holidaymakers over 70.

A 77-year-old woman swimming just a few metres from the shore of Los Náufragos beach in Torrevieja (Alicante) was found unconscious in the sea at 15.10hrs today, but rescue workers were unable to revive her.

Her name and nationality have not yet been revealed and medics are trying to ascertain whether she drowned or died of another health condition whilst in the water.

Two men aged 70 and 75 drowned off the Canyamel (Capdepera) and Can Pastilla (Palma) beaches in Mallorca at 07.30hrs and 10.10hrs this morning.

The first man is said to be a Swiss national, but no further details have been released.

Last night, a 14-year-old girl from San Sebastián (Basque Country) went missing whilst swimming in the sea with her friends off the beach of her home town.

A night-long search party involving rescue helicopters and police divers eventually led to the discovery of her body off La Concha beach.

But a Dutch national had a lucky escape last night after he became trapped in the sea by  rocks off the beach of Rincón de Begur (Girona).

Fire brigade helicopters had to be called in after being alerted by a passing fisherman, as the 48-year-old man was in an area impossible to access on foot.

He was finally taken to Los Palamós hospital in Girona for treatment for his injuries, but his condition is not said to be life-threatening.
