WITH the death toll following the flash flooding in Mallorca already standing at ten, emergency services are concentrating their efforts to find a child and two Germans who are still unaccounted for.
More than 600 people are working to search and clear the debris after the Balearic island suffered some of the worst flash floods in living memory.
Spain’s Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, visited the disaster zone yesterday while tennis star Rafa Nadal rolled up his sleeves helped in the massive clean-up operation.
Yesterday emergency services confirmed that the death toll currently stands at ten with fatalities in Sant Llorenç, Artà, S’Illot and Carrió.
They numbered six men and four women. Three of them were foreigners – a British couple and a Dutch woman.
UK media have named the British couple as Anthony Green and his wife Delia who were drowned in a taxi being driven by Juan Sillero who is also one of the ten known to have died.
There is also one unidentified man – also possibly a foreigner.
Some of the victims were found still in their cars that had been carried away by the flood waters.
The emergency forces continue searching the missing boy after the flood. They also search for two german people.
