Bather dies in Torrevieja
By Dave Jones PARAMEDICS were unable to revive a 69-yearold Russian man who got into trouble while taking an early morning swim at Playa del Cura in Torrevieja on Sunday.
Emergency services were called to attend to the pensioner at 08.37, as he was suffering from the ‘effects of drowning’. According to the CICU coordination centre, the man had entered the water before the lifeguard service had started.
Also on Sunday, a three-year-old girl was taken to hospital suffering from symptoms of drowning after an incident at Los Narejos beach in Los Alcázares. Bathers rang the emergency services at 12.39 to say they had pulled the youngster from the sea and she was uncon- scious. They reported that were able to revive her and she had started to vomit. The child was then stabilised on the beach by paramedics.
