EMERGENCY services have said that ten victims have officially been confirmed dead following the freak floods that swept through Spain’s Balearic island last night (Tuesday).
The ten deceased comprised of six men and four women.
Two Spanish women died and four Spanish men.
There were also three foreign victims including a British couple and a Dutch woman.
One male person hasn’t yet been identified but is presumed to be a foreigner.
The emergency services went on to say three of the victims were found in Sant Llorenç and Son Carrió and two each in Artà and s’Illot.
Spain’s Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, has visited the island today and said in a Tweet: ” I want to convey our gratitude to the emergency services, who work tirelessly to serve all those affected.”
