The holiday for Funchal today has not ended well for one young man who lost his life in Funchal.
The young bather who was being given resuscitation manoeuvres in Praia Nova, ended up dying on the spot.
In spite of the efforts of the fire-fighters, swimmers and EMIR, it was not possible to save the young person under 30 years of age who was found floating in the sea near Praia Nova, between Praia Formosa and Câmara de Lobos, in an unguarded area. This area of beach along Praia Formosa is known for its under currents. Swimmers found the person and helped bring him to shore.
Thoughts go out to the family.
