An elderly bather reportedly lost his life on the beach of Son Caliu, in Palmanova, on the popular Balearic island of Mallorca. The incident occurred during the early afternoon hours of Sunday, September 4. It is believed that the man was in the water swimming when he suddenly got into difficulty for as yet unknown reasons.
The emergency services were alerted and patrols from the Guardia Civil were promptly in attendance at the location. An ambulance from the Servei d’Atencio Medica Urgent (SAMU-061) was also deployed, complete with a medical team.
Despite their best efforts to revive the man, they were unable to save his life and he was pronounced dead at the scene. The man’s body was subsequently transferred to the Institute of Legal Medicine, as reported by ultimahora.es.
