Fi­esta death shocks Dé­nia

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

The sud­den death of a young fi­esta club mem­ber blighted the 'half-year' Moors and Chris­tians cel­e­bra­tions in Dé­nia, which ended at the week­end. Tomàs Chiner Ba­baloni, a mem­ber of the De­niers Chris­tians filà and the Falla Cen­tro com­mis­sion, was just 40 years old when he col­lapsed and died in­stantly with a heart at­tack. He and his friends, among hun­dreds of other lo­cal res­i­dents, were cel­e­brat­ing the Mig Any or 'half-year' Moors and Chris­tians, a low-key event to break up the year be­fore the spec­tac­u­lar sum­mer pa­rades. All the fi­laes, or troops, had joined in a se­ries of cel­e­bra­tions for the first day of the mini-fi­esta, which usu­ally cul­mi­nates with a meal for all fes­ti­val group mem­bers. Tomàs was the el­dest son of a very well-known Dé­nia fam­ily, and his death has rocked the lo­cal com­mu­nity.
