The summer season has claimed its second life through a fatal abuse of narcotics.
Emergency services were alerted of an individual suffering cardio-respiratory difficulties in Playa d’en Bossa at 1.30 a.m. on Friday.
Two ambulances attended the incident, an advanced life support unit and a regular emergency ambulance.
In a statement that was unusually sparse of details as to the actions of the paramedics, the emergency services said that they were unable to do anything to save his life, but there is no indication whether he was alive when they arrived, or whether it was already too late to perform life saving procedures.
The young man was identified as a tourist of Spanish nationality who was staying in Playa d’en Bossa. His friends had taken him to the street in front of a Disco to meet the paramedics on arrival. The report states that it is unknown whether he was a customer at the disco, or had been staying in the apartments.
The deceased man’s friends were very forthcoming in confirming to them all having used various narcotics prior to the fatal reaction of the one individual.
Later in the day the Judge at Ibiza court number one instructed that an autopsy be performed.
The health service dispatched their team of psychological councillors to work with the deceased friends.
