Brit tourist, 37, dies on holiday after falling ill next to girlfriend in bed

A British tourist, aged 37, has died after having breathing problems in his hotel room in Menorca, it is reported.

Emergency services were called to the hotel on the Spanish island, but they were not able to save him after he suffered a cardiac arrest.

His girlfriend was with him in the hotel and went for help when he started to suffer breathing problems during Wednesday night which then led to the medical episode.

Paramedics tried to resuscitate him but sadly the 37-year-old died.

The couple were staying in the village of Arenal d’en Castell in the north of the island.

His body has now been taken away for an autopsy that will be carried out later today to establish the cause of death, local news reported.

Meanwhile last week a British man drowned on neighbouring Balearic island, Majorca, after his partner saw him floating in the water.

Lifeguards brought the 62-year-old man out of the water and emergency responders spent nearly an hour trying to revive him on the sand.

Their attempts to save him were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The tragedy happened at the holiday resort of Puerto Pollensa in the north-east of Majorca which is popular with British holidaymakers including many who have second homes in the area.

The alarm was raised around 3.30pm local time

Well-placed sources said his partner alerted lifeguards.

One said: “She saw him floating in the water after he went for a swim. Lifeguards pulled him out of the water and tried to revive him before emergency responders took over when they arrived.”

And last April a British man drowned in front of his teenage son in Tenerife.

The unnamed 58-year-old was pulled out of the sea by two people said to include a nurse who performed CPR on him after he went into cardiac arrest while they waited for emergency responders to arrive.

The emergency responders continued to try to revive him after reaching the scene, near the Punta de Teno lighthouse at the northwestern tip of Tenerife, but there was nothing they could do to save him.
