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

The alarm was raised this morning.

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 tomorrow.

The Civil Guard in Majorca has confirmed it has launched an investigation into the tragedy. It is being overseen by a local investigating judge.

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 practicing CPR on him before taking him to the island’s Mateu Orfila Hospital in a ‘critical condition.’

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 south-east of Menorca.

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