A husband and wife of Spanish nationality died on Sunday in the Portuguese beach of Nazaré, to the north of Lisbon, as a result of the strong waves. The woman, aged 75, died on the spot, while her husband’s body, 77, was adrift for approximately an hour and a half before being located.

The tragedy occurred at around 2:35 pm local time (15.35 Spanish) when the victims were walking along the shore. A gigantic wave surprised them and dragged them out to sea with great force.

Unfortunately, at the time of the drownings there was no lifeguard on the beach because the season has not yet started.

The Portuguese Navy, after receiving the alert, mobilized a helicopter, a rescue boat and a jet ski, and managed to locate the man alive and with severe symptoms of hypothermia, although, unfortunately, the resuscitation maneuvers did not work and the man passed away.
