A MAN died on a cruise ship, just hours before it arrived in Palma Port.
He reportedly felt ill and died suddenly. The captain informed the authorities in Palma, which was the nearest city and a coroner boarded the ship to examine the body and pronounce the man dead.
In a separate incident, the Guardia Civil are investigating the death of a woman whose remains were found in her apartment in Santa Ponça, Calvia, in an advanced state of decomposition. It is thought she had been dead several days before neighbours alerted the authorities because they hadn’t seen her and noticed a bad smell. Local Police and firemen were also on the scene to access the apartment.
