It comes after a French man died in a jet ski accident in Fuengirola last August. 

The 32-year-old was driving the jet ski when the vehicle hit a wave, causing his head to hit the handlebars. 

It is believed he died as a result of the head injury, before falling into the water. 

He was also carrying a passenger, who was unharmed.

It was the second fatal incident involving a jet ski on the Costa del Sol last summer. 

In another, a 32-year-old mother of two died in El Palo after suffering a blow to the head when she attempted to retrieve her hat from the water. 

She remained floating, unconscious, until her friends brought her to shore. 

Unfortunately, it was too late and the woman died.
