Heatwave which caused six deaths on the way out
07 August 2018 @ 00:23

A HEATWAVE sweeping the country and forcing temperatures into the mid-40s is about to end, but has already caused six deaths – two each in the provinces of Tarragona and Murcia and one each in those of Barcelona and Cáceres (Extremadura).

Additionally, the death of a 40-year-old German man walking the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail is being investigated and may have been the result of extreme temperatures.

A man was found unconscious on Thursday in Constantí, Tarragona, near the Centcelles Roman heritage site and died two days later in the Joan XXIII Hospital, whilst on Saturday a 60-year-old man was also admitted and passed away later that evening – both from heatstroke.

Both may have been homeless and neither had any ID, so police are trying to identify them.
