A 58-year-old woman is in a critical condition in hospital after almost drowning in the pool of an apartment complex in Puerto Santiago.

In the latest pool tragedy to hit the island, the holidaymaker was rescued at around 5pm yesterday after other users realised she was in difficulties. She was tended by the public until the emergency services arrived to rush her to the hospital in Playa de Las Américas, where doctors have managed to keep her alive. Her condition last night was critical.
