Swimmer saved from sea
A man nearly drowned in Lanzarote on Christmas Day.
He was pulled from the water in the nick of time when spotted in the sea off the beach of Las Cucharas in Costa Teguise.
The 56-year-old man who, at the initial moment of care, showed signs of moderate drowning, except for complications, was transferred by medical ambulance from the SUC to the Doctor José Molina Orosa Hospital.
The Canary Emergency Service, Civil Guard and Local police all attended.
Lifeguards had rescued him just after lunchtime on December 25th.
