Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

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.
