Shock as man dies near Vera naturist beach in Spain’s Almeria.
The shocking events happened on Monday, August 30. The man died suddenly, despite the best attempts of lifeguards, when he was near the naturist area of Vera Playa.
According to La Voz de Almeria, the man is thought to have been around 70 years old and at the time of the tragedy he was near a well-known beach bar at about 2 pm in the afternoon. The man collapsed as he was heading from the beach bar towards the beach.
Despite the best efforts of two lifeguards who were on duty who immediately rushed to his help, nothing could be done to save him. The two lifeguards performed resuscitation procedures and even used a defibrillator. They also alerted the emergency services on 061.
Sadly, they were not able to revive the man and once the emergency services arrived on scene, all they were able to do was confirm that the man had sadly died.
In other Almeria news, new archaeology campaign begins in Almeria’s Mojacar. The archaeology campaign will take place at la Vieja, and 30 archaeologists, restorers and students will take part. There will be plenty events open to the public too.
The excavation campaign for Mojacar’s la Vieja has begun. Like other years the campaign involves both the local council and the Valparaiso Foundation, overseen by experts from the University of Granada and the MemoLab cultural archaeology laboratory.
This year’s campaign is shorter than normal and will only run until September 10. Lecturer at the University of Granada in the Department of Medieval History, Sciences and Historiographic Techniques, Jose Maria Civantos, has explained that the campaign this year will be more focused on restoring the site in a bid to both preserve and protect it for the public.
