Drowning tragedy in Mogán 

There has been another drowning in the Canary Islands, this time in the sea off Gran Canaria.

The scene of the tragedy was Playa de Amadores in the municipality of Mogán.

Police said the victim was a 66-year-old Norwegian man.

The Canary Emergency Service attended, together with the local police, Civil Guard and Civil Protection.

The 112 centre said lifeguards from Playa de Amadores had rescued the woman from the sea. She was found to be in cardiorespiratory arrest so medics carried out advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation. However, their efforts were not successful and they could only confirm her death.
