Man Dies From Drowning Just Off El Sillón Beach In Torrox.
THE 112 Andalucia Emergency service, on Tuesday March 30, deployed the Public Health Emergencies Company ambulance (EPES 061), the Guardia Civil, the Local Police, and the Torrox Civil Protection unit, to an incident on El Sillón beach, in the Malaga municipality of Torrox.
The services were mobilised to a location just 200 metres from the Torrox lighthouse – which is next to the remains of a castle destroyed during the War of Independence – on El Sillón beach, after 112 received a call just before 7pm from a member of the public reporting that a middle-aged man had been dragged unconscious from the sea, onto the beach, and was in need of urgent medical attention.
Medical staff from the EPES 061 ambulance tried to resuscitate the man but sadly he was confirmed dead at the scene, and an investigation is underway by the relevant authorities to determine the circumstances of his death, but his identity has not yet been released, as reported by juntadeandalucia.es.
