The body of a man aged between 40 and 50 was found floating just off a Salobrena beach on the 24th of July, between the Penon (Peñon) and La Caleta.
The emergency number 112 received several calls around 13.20 to say that what looked like a dead body had been spotted floating about 20 metres out.
The local Proteccion Civil retrieved the corpse about 25 minutes later and the state of the body indicated that death by drowning had occurred a few hours earlier.
More information on the identity of the victim and the details of the tragedy are still not known.
