Angler drowns in sea at Poris de Abona

The body of a 62-year-old angler was pulled from the water near the lighthouse in Poris de Abona yesterday morning after emergency services received several calls about a body spotted in the sea. Ambulances and a rescue helicopter attended, as well as medical personnel from Arico health centre, but despite all attempts to resuscitate him, they could do no more than pronounce him dead at the scene.  This is far from an isolated incident where anglers have either died or got into difficulties on what can be a dangerous coastline around the island. Do be careful when fishing! LO
