Girl dies after falling into river from suspension bridge

A 23 year old girl died from drowning after falling into a river from a suspension bridge in Vélez de Benaudalla, Granada province.

The girl, a Rumanian national, was with a group of friends in an area known locally as La Playilla. The group went onto the suspension bridge and then, for reasons as yet unknown, slipped and fell into the río Guadalfeo.

The water was fast flowing and dragged the girl, who couldn’t swim, about a kilometre downstream.

Her body was recovered and medics tried for an hour to resuscitate the girl but to no avail.
