A 21-year-old angler died just before lunchtime after falling into the water while setting up his spot to fish in Playa de la Viuda in the Candelaria area. Sadly, it appears that the man was unable to swim, and despite emergency services despatching a search and rescue helicopter and lifeboat, by the time he was located he had already drowned. His body was brought into land by the helicopter, where waiting medical personnel could do no more than certify his death.
