A 71-year-old tourist from Germany drowned on Formentera. The man was pulled out of the water by lifeguards on Friday evening around 6 p.m. on the beach of Migjorn in the south of the Spanish Mediterranean island, the newspaper “Última Hora” reported on Saturday, citing the Samu rescue service.

All attempts at resuscitation had been unsuccessful, it said. Upon request, Samu confirmed the victim’s German nationality, but did not want to provide any further information on his or her identity. It was therefore initially unknown from which region in Germany the man came.

According to media reports, a similar incident occurred almost at the same time on Mallorca north of Formentera. At the bay of Cala s’Almunia in the municipality of Santanyí in the south of the island, bathers discovered a man on the seabed.

An off-duty police officer pulled him out of the water and spent 20 minutes trying to revive him with the help of paramedics. But all efforts were unsuccessful. The victim was a 40-year-old Korean tourist who died in front of relatives, it said.
