85-year-old man dies on Victoria beach in Cádiz from a suspected heart attack.
An 85-year-old man died at around eleven o’clock on Monday, August 23, on Victoria beach, Cadiz, just yards away from the El Arte Serrano restaurant.
According to witnesses, the victim was swimming when he ran into difficulty, so he had to be assisted by the Guardia Civil and Red Cross personnel who helped him get out of the water- however, it was already too late and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Apparently, although not confirmed by the health sources, the 85-year-old man could have died after suffering a heart attack and not because of drowning, as it was initially thought.
The rescue and the man’s subsequent death caused a great deal of shock among the large crowd who were already on the beach at the time, enjoying the sun, sand and sea.
Around one in the afternoon, the victim’s body was transferred from the scene by an ambulance, once all the necessary details had been taken and a doctor had confirmed the death. No further information regards the man nationality have been offered by the police or emergency services.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
