A British woman died in the early hours of Monday morning after a fall in a bar which caused her to cut herself on some glass.
Sally Feelly, a 42 year old hairdresser and long time resident of Nerja, was enjoying a drink with some friends on a terrace on the Balcón de Europa when, for unknown reasons, she fell. As she hit the table, a glass broke and she suffered a very deep wound to the armpit.
People in the bar used towels to try and stem the bleeding, which was profuse, until an ambulance arrived. The ambulance was only a few minutes in arriving but Sally had already lost too much blood and was unconscious. She was taken to the hospital in Vélez-Málaga but died within the hour from cardiopulmonary arrest due to the extreme loss of blood.
Sally leaves behind a 14 year old son.
