Man found dead in road after hitting head


A 47-YEAR-OLD man has died on a road on the Costa del Sol, after apparently falling and hitting his head.

Police found the man on Velez Malaga’s Camino de la Aretilla after two residents reported hearing a “snoring” noise. Officers shot to the scene at around 11 pm and found the deceased lying face down and breathing with difficulty.

They quickly called for medical help, but the man had stopped breathing before paramedics arrived, and he was declared dead at the scene.

The National Police are now waiting for the results of an autopsy but say all signs suggest he fell and hit his head on a rock.
