Default Canarian Weekly: Costa Adeje tragedy as pensioners drown

TWO male pensioners were drowned in separate incidents,within hours of each other, in the Costa Adeje region on Monday.

A 79-year-old Briton, aged 79, died at about 1.30pm after he’d gone for a swim in his hotel pool, in Calle Londres.

An ambulance was dispatched, following an emergency call, when he stopped breathing, after getting into trouble, and being rescued.

When the medics arrived, they soon assessed the situation and began CPR immediately because his heart had already stopped. But it was too little, too late for him.

About 5˝ hours later, in Playa Fanabe, a German aged 70, met the same fate, after being rescued from the sea. Tragically, his heart had already stopped beating.

The Canarian Emergency Services were alerted when a call was received at 6.37pm, requesting an ambulance, and a helicopter, in the hope of getting him to hospital rapidly. But to no avail.
