A BATHER and diver have drowned in separate incidents in Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura in Spain’s Canary Islands.

A man in his 60s who was bathing with two children lost his life on Saturday afternoon at La Lajita beach in Gran Canaria. He was rescued by a private boat that took him to shore where CPR was administered but he lost his life.

And a 25-year-old spear-fishing diver died near the Faro de la Entellada on the island of Fuerteventura. A call to the emergency services alerted them that he had not returned to shore.
