The searches on an alleged drowning in the area of the beach of São Tiago, in Funchal, are at this time on going. Moments ago a witness saw someone fall into the sea, and dissappear.
Sea rescue teams from the Maritime Police and Volunteer Firefighters of Funchal are now in the sea on two boats, as well as a Red Cross ambulance.
The searches are being made by land and sea.
