Crete holiday tragedy as British tourist found dead on beach in Greek island hotspot

Date:


The 54-year-old man was reportedly found in the resort town of Stalida on the northern coast. Beachgoers sounded the alarm after realising the man hadn’t moved from his sunbed for hours, according to Creta Post. Emergency services were called and they rushed to the scene in a desperate bid to save his life. The Brit was rushed to Heraklion University Hospital but was sadly pronounced dead.

An autopsy will take place to determine the cause of death.

Stalida, located on the northern coast of Crete, is one of island’s most popular tourist destinations, known for its family-friendly beach.

The Greek town is quieter than the neighbouring resorts of Malia and Hersonissos.

It is said to have a more relaxed atmosphere with a wide array of bars and restaurants.

It comes after a British tourist died in Majorca after reportedly falling from the seventh floor of a hotel in the popular resort of Magaluf.

The 34-year-old man died in the horrifying accident at the South Beach Hotel located on Notari Alemany in Calvià on the Spanish island.

He fell more than 50ft to his death. The British tourist reportedly instantly and “there was nothing that could be done” to save him.
