A 24-year-old Danish man was found dead yesterday in an artificial lake on a golf resort in southern Spain, according to local media.

The Dane hadn’t been seen since Sunday night while staying at the five-star golf resort La Torre Golf outside Torre Pacheco in Murcia, which led to his family notifying the local police.

His body was found by another resort guest at 16:00 floating in one of the resort’s artificial lakes. The police believe that he drowned.

Alcohol a factor?
Witnesses have told Spanish media sources that the man was extremely drunk on Sunday night. The police speculate he fell into the lake and was unable to get out on his own.

The Foreign Ministry confirmed that a Danish citizen had been found dead in Spain, but wouldn’t provide any further information.

An autopsy of the man – who had been vacationing at the resort with his family – has been scheduled to confirm the cause of death.

The man is the second Dane to die in Spain in just two weeks after a young Danish woman was found murdered in Madrid on June 13.
