A 32-year-old tourist has been killed while riding a jet ski on the Costa del Sol. 

The Frenchman was driving the vehicle in the waters off Fuengirola when tragedy struck at around 4.40pm on Wednesday. 

It comes after a woman of the same age died in a similar accident in El Palo on July 16. 

The jetski today, carrying two people, had left from the port of Benalmadena before travelling past the Rey de España promenade in Fuengirola. 

It was then that the vehicle crashed into a wave, causing both the driver and passenger to fall off.
