A little boy of just five years old was, mercifully, resuscitated today after nearly drowning in a swimming pool in Puerto Santiago shortly before four this afternoon. Emergency services were called out and stabilized him at the scene before transferring him to Hospiten Sur where he remains in serious condition, but alive.
Update 30 June: Sr Rivero has repeated his message loud and clear in the Magma Centre, where he appeared yesterday in a local presentation of municipal plans for modernization and improvement of tourism in Adeje and Arona. Present were representatives from both councils and from the hotel and tourism sectors. Sr Rivero said that there was no other economic activity in the Canaries capable of creating employment en masse other than tourism, and for pure self-interest, the islands had to improve their competitivity against the likes of the Caribbean, Turkey and Morocco so as to take advantage of the fact that we have touristic factors here – like climate, natural features, etc. – to be the best in the world.
