Swedish tourist dies in Canary Islands

Young man from Sweden dies after hotel balcony fall

A 21-year-old man from central Sweden has died after falling from a balcony in a hotel in the Canary Islands. No criminal act is suspected. The young ice hockey player from Dalarna was staying at the IFA Dunamar Hotel in Playa del Ingles, where he was on a holiday break with three friends. He was discovered in the pool area in the early hours of the morning.
The man’s family has been informed, and his hockey team wrote on its website that “he was extremely kind and a well-liked teammate.”
