Two dead on the beaches
Yesterday, a windsurfer suffered a fatal heart attack on his surfboard at El Médano. At around 1.15pm, the emergency services received a call reporting the rescue of a surfer on the beach who had a cardiac arrest. Resuscitation measures had been started on the beach. Neither a helicopter crew equipped with advanced emergency technology nor a doctor from the local medical centre could do anything more for the man.
Yesterday morning in Gran Canaria, on the Playa de Amadores in Mogán, an unidentified man also died. He had been in distress while swimming in the sea and made hand signals that he needed help. The rescue protocol was immediately activated. The man was taken on board a helicopter and flown to the Doctor Negrin University Hospital. Despite resuscitation measures on board, only the death of the man could be determined in this case.
