A man died this evening after being swept into the sea by a wave in Charco de La Laja, San Juan de la Rambla. Emergency services say that they were called out around 6.30pm  with reports that the man had been found in a rocky area of the coast after being dragged into the water by rough seas. The poor man was under water by the time Bomberos located him, and after he was brought to the surface, a helicopter winched a rescuer down and he was transfered to Puerto de la Cruz. Despite all their attempts at resuscitation, however, nothing could be done to save his life and he was declared dead by paramedics at the harbour.
