TRAGIC: Young man dies in illegal reservoir swim.
The body of a young man was discovered in a reservoir in Crevillent after he was reported missing following a swim with friends.
THE tragic incident occurred in the Crevillent reservoir, an area which is strictly forbidden to swim in.
A total of four friends had gone swimming in the reservoir, but when one of them did not return, they alerted both the Benemérita and Local Police of Crevillent.
After a search, members of the Special Groups of Underwater Activities (GEAS) of the Guardia Civil were called and recovered the body of a 24-year-old man.
The councillor for Security and Police, Josep Candela, reported that the disappearance occurred around 4.30pm on Thursday August 27, before the tragic discovery at around midnight.
