Man in critical condition after jumping into shallows at Poris de Abona harbour

A 50-year-old man is in critical condition after jumping into shallow water in the harbour at Poris de Abona around 5.30pm this evening. Emergency services were called out with reports that the man was unconscious and in cardiac arrest, and had been rescued by a lifeguard who was attempting to resuscitate him. Paramedics, together with a doctor and nurse from the local health centre, took over the resuscitation efforts and managed to revive him. He was then transferred to Candelaria Hospital where he remains in critical condition.
