German holidaymaker’s body found floating in sea at Fañabe after highest tide in four years

The man has been identified as a 60-year-old German holidaymaker who was seen on some rocks near El Veril shortly before being swept away by a strong wave. The high tide all around the south of Tenerife yesterday resulted in stronger waves than seen in the last four years, and many people were attracted to the coast to watch the effects. It is not known whether this victim was one of such visitors, but it was one of the waves which swept him away. The alarm was raised by his wife, also German.   El Dia
