CIRCUMSTANCES around the death of a German tourist on Saturday, June 19, are being investigated by the Guardia Civil. The incident happened in Fornalutx, Mallorca.
Emergency services were contacted by phone by the girlfriend of the German man. The couple had been watching the Portugal v Germany football match and drinking at a property that belongs to relatives. His girlfriend realised she did not know where he was and when she went outside she discovered his lifeless body.
Tragically, when the emergency services arrived at the scene they found the girlfriend hugging his lifeless body. She was taken to hospital to be treated for shock, Mallorca Daily Bulletin reports.
The news comes as horrified beachgoers watched on as a woman plunged to her death from a cliff near Durdle Door, on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset, England. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said it had received multiple 999 calls about the incident.
A witness at the scene, Michelle Attard, from London and visiting Durdle Door, said: “There were two helicopters and police trying to find out how someone slipped off the edge of the cliff. Such a sad event to witness.”
According to reports, emergency services, including police officers, ambulance crews and firefighters, were called in response to a ‘person falling from height’ at Man O’War beach at 3.07pm today, Monday, June, 14.
