Mallorca: German vacationer (19) collapses on the beach and dies – lifeguard tells of the drama

On Saturday, a 19-year-old German tourist suddenly dies on the beach in Mallorca. He came out of the water when he complained of malaise and collapsed.

Update from August 24th: Why the 19-year-old vacationer collapsed is still unclear. In the meantime, his parents have also arrived on the Balearic island, reports There the young man is autopsied. Meanwhile, the lifeguard coordinator Francisco Miguez (35) explains in an interview: “The boy was conscious for about 14 minutes and his heart was beating weakly. We ventilated him with oxygen, but his body did not accept the oxygen. “

The 19-year-old’s sister said that he had had heart problems since childhood and was receiving treatment. “He had himself vaccinated against Corona before his trip to Mallorca, and afterwards felt bad and often very weak,” the lifeguard continued. “Before he flew to Mallorca, he is said to have gone to the doctor again in Germany. They checked him through and said that everything was okay and that he could travel, ”said the sister to Miguez. In the incident report, natural death was given as the cause of death. It remains to be seen what the result of the autopsy will be.
