Person dies falling off jet ski

Punta Paloma beach
TARIFA (Europa Sur) A person was rescued yesterday after swimmers close to Punta Paloma, in military zone, saw three people on a jet ski approach the beach. Two of them seemed to fall off the back while  the jetski made off. Someone called the 112 emergency number at 18:28 and the Red Cross, Guardia Civil, Protección Civil and Salvamento Marítimo (Sea Rescue) were mobilized immediately. One of the two people in the water survived and managed to reach land, the other was taken out dead, and the jetski, with driver, was intercepted and brought in. The GC is investigating the matter but sources are inclined to believe this is yet another illegal immigration event.
