TWO people have been rescued by helicopter from a burning building in Ibiza.
The helicopter landed on the blazing apartment block on Carrer de Jacinta Arquenza on Monday while black smoke billowed out of windows beneath.
The two trapped were safely airlifted from the clutches of death to hospital.
The blaze, which was put out on Monday afternoon, killed one person, put three in hospital and forced 80 to evacuate their homes.
Firefighters also found the bodies of two dogs in the burnt-out remains of the building.
Ibiza held a minute’s silence yesterday (Tuesday) for the victim.
