Man dies while swimming at Maltese beauty spot

A man has died after getting difficulties while swimming at one of Malta’s natural beauty spots.

An extensive search was carried out after three men were reported missing at 4.35pm on Thursday.

They had been swimming at the Coral Lagoon near Mellieha when they found themselves in difficulty because of strong waves.

The police said one of the men – a 24-year-old Colombian – was saved by the Armed Forces of Malta while a 29-year-old Mexican grabbed on to the cliff to save his life.

A 25-year-old Colombian man was later found dead.

The surviving victims were assisted by members of the Civil Protection Department.
