On 19 March, a distressing incident occurred near Almoradí, where a 15-year-old boy went missing while swimming in the river with a group of six friends. The disappearance was reported at 11:34, at the location of the Monumento de los Héroes de la Riada. A rigorous search ensued, involving several specialist units including, drones and divers from the Provincial Fire Consortium of Alicante, as well as a helicopter for aerial support. Unfortunately, the boy’s body was found hours later, around 14:45, in the same area from which he had disappeared. The search effort extended from Almoradí to the mouth of Guardamar, covering both air, land, and water. The involvement of multiple firefighter units, drones, and divers highlights the extensive effort made in the search. The loss of a young life in such circumstances is a somber reminder of the risks associated with water bodies. Our thoughts are with the boy’s friends and family during this difficult time.
