A British man died yesterday(July 8) after diving into the shallow end of a Costa Blanca villa swimming pool.
The 64-year-old had gone to visit a friend at a property on the Montemar urbanisation in Benissa.
He decided to cool himself off with a swim.
Unfortunately he went headfirst into the wrong end of the pool which had a depth of just one metre.
Emergency services were called at around 5.40 pm.
Policia Local officers arrived first on the scene and spent 45 minutes trying to revive him.
A doctor and paramedics could do nothing more, except to pronounce his death.
No further details have been made available.
