Two young men from Bridgwater have died on holiday on Spain’s Costa Blanca after falling over 30 feet while posing for a photo.
Daniel Mee, 25, and Jayden Dolman, 20, fell in an area known as Punta Prima, near the popular resort of Torrevieja, at around 7.30pm on Wednesday 3rd July.
A third Bridgwater man, named as Lewis Higgins, 24, who had been taking the photo, was taken to hospital reportedly suffering from shock.
Daniel died at the scene having landed on a hut used by lifeguards, while Jayden was airlifted to Alicante Hospital with serious injuries and died yesterday, Thursday 4th July, in intensive care.
According to Spanish media, the men were trying to take a selfie on the other side of the railings when two of them fell from a height of 10-12m (32-39ft).
Local officials told El Mundo that the railings were in “perfect condition”.
An investigation has been launched, and the area where the accident happened has been cordoned off.
