British man drowns at private swimming pool on holiday hotspot island of Menorca

A British man has drowned at a private swimming pool on the Spanish holiday island of Menorca.

A maintenance man reportedly discovered the 64-year-old's body floating in the water of the swimming pool before alerting authorities.

The unnamed Brit is said to have owned the property where he was found dead, but it was not immediately clear if he lived on the island or was on holiday at the time.

Local police, Civil Guard officers and paramedics were among the emergency responders who raced to the villa in a residential area called Trebaluger near Es Castell on the east of the island.

Police are understood to be looking at the possibility the victim ended up in the pool after falling and hitting his head.

An autopsy is expected to take place on Saturday.

Last month a 72-year-old British man was rushed to hospital after being rescued from a hotel swimming pool in Menorca.

Paramedics managed to recover his pulse after giving CPR on him before taking him to the island’s Mateu Orfila Hospital in a “critical condition.”

That tragedy happened days after a British man aged 70 drowned at a pool at the residential apartment block in Menorca he was staying.

In June, an Irish holidaymaker aged 69 drowned in the sea in an area known as Paupa next to Cala Torre, a picturesque beach in the southeast of Menorca.
