Man dies in the Lido

Firefighters and EMIR, the emergency response team, were called to the lido yesterday afternoon and recovered an individual aged approximately 60 years after he suffered an episode of sudden illness, followed by a cardiorespiratory arrest. According to a fire department source, despite the prompt action of the rescue teams, unfortunately, it was impossible to reverse the situation, which is why the EMIR doctor pronounced him dead on the spot.

However, for legal reasons, the body can only be removed from the site after health authorities have analyzed the entire body. The PSP was also in a private car park in Lido, where the situation occurred, according to JM.
