Two Brit's die after slipping while taking a selfie

Two British men have died after falling over railings at the Punta Prima Beach.

The men were taking a photo. The initial reports were that they had fallen from a height of around 40 feet.

It’s believed one of the victims slipped, and by trying to hold on to his friend he subsequently pulled him to his death also.

A third holidaymaker was with them, but he escaped unharmed.

Daniel died at the scene, having landed on a hut used by lifeguards.

Meanwhile Jayden was airlifted to Alicante Hospital with serious injuries. But he was said to have died today in the intensive care war.  

Punta Prima is the headland marking the border between the municipalities of Orihuela and Torrevieja.
