Woman dies after slipping while taking a selfie

A Ukranian woman was rushed to hospital on Tuesday afternoon after falling while taking a selife at one of Benidorm’s iconic tourist attractions.

The 26-year-old, who was with a friend, fell while trying to take a photo of herself at the beauty spot with the Levante beach in the background.

She was rescued by a team of lifeguards and given CPR until her vital signs returned. She was then taken to Alicante General Hospital where she was reportedly in a very serious condition in the Intensive Care Unit.

This video on Antena 3 shows the moment when the lifeguards tackled the waves on the rocks to rescue her.
