A 77-year-old man has been pulled unconscious from the water after drowning at Los Cristianos beach. Emergency services were called out just after midday, and the Red Cross tried to resuscitate him there and then on the sand. Only when ambulance teams arrived, however, was it established that he was in cardiac arrest, and their advanced resuscitation processes were able to bring him around. He has been transferred to Hospitén Sur in critical condition. Canarias7
The tragedy comes hot on the heels of two others at El Camisón beach over the weekend as posted HERE. On Saturday, a 26-year-old man nearly drowned and was found in cardiac arrest. He is now in a critical condition in Hospitén Sur. Two days later, a 50-year-old woman died of a heart attack at the beach.
