I am not technologically educated enough to post a link, but www.dailymail.co.uk has an article saying that a UK tourist was drowned in PB yesterday.

Lord have mercy on his soul.

A tourist swam out in heavy seas and subsequently drowned.....the first this year.....average figures are between 15-20 every year here......most usually as this one ignoring the flags and warnings.

The Daily Mail says the tragedy occured at PDC.

But fancy ignoring the red flags ?

Yes it was the Playa Blnca beach in PdC, not PB. I think quite a few of the drownings are people fishing off the rocks rather than swimmers.

Yes I have seen those rocks get covered at high tide regularly and that the fishermen use.

That's very sad, his family must be devastated.

Some of the comments from the Daily Mail readers are disgusting.

Very sad story but in fairness, the flags are not always that noticeable. I have been there loads of times and have to really look around to find the flag to see what colour it is. I never just notice what colour it is. There should be more along the beach.
