Man’s body found in harbour area of Puerto de la Cruz

The body of 27-year-old Argentine professional handball player Augusto Cozzi was found shortly before 10am this morning in Puerto de la Cruz harbour. Emergency services say that they were called out with reports that a man had been seen not moving on the concrete block breakwater but that sadly medical personnel attending the scene could only certify his death at the scene. It seems that the man, who only recently joined team Balonmano Bolaños based in Ciudad Real in central Spain, could have been taking part in the Puerto de la Cruz carnival which is currently underway since he was in fancy dress when found. His body has been removed for an autopsy to be carried out but he appears tragically to have fallen to his death.
