A 75-year-old Norwegian man died as a result of drowning during the afternoon this week after swimming from Puerto Rico Beach in Gran Canaria.
Lifeguards rescued the man from the sea who was shown to be cardiorespiratory arrest, and they performed resuscitation procedures until the arrival of 112 Emergency Service teams, who continued with these procedures, but without success, and could only confirm his death.
