British teenager dies after collapsing at Ibiza nightclub

A British teenager has died in hospital after collapsing at a nightclub in Ibiza in the early hours of this morning, it has been reported.

The 19-year-old was rushed to hospital from an unnamed club at around 5am this morning.

He was said to have gone into cardiac arrest before paramedics arrived.

They are understood to have stabilised him at the scene and taken him to Can Misses Hospital in the island capital at about 6.30am.

He died less than an hour later in the same hospital.

The nightspot where he collapsed has not yet been named but is believed to be on the road leading from the party resort of San Antonio to Ibiza Town.

Sources said the teenager collapsed in the Amnesia nightclub which is near the village of San Rafael on the road between San Antonio and Ibiza Town.

It was holding a summer-season weekly party called Bresh last night.

An entry on its website says: ‘Every Thursday from June 8th until August 31st, BRESH! lands at Amnesia

‘The enigmatic party with top artists that have already landed in more than twenty countries, and now returns to Ibiza the most beautiful party in the world.’

A local health source confirmed the patient admitted to Can Misses was a ‘19-year-old British national.’

He said: ‘The initial call came in at 4.50am this morning.

‘Emergency responders were asked to attend a nightspot on the road between San Antonio and Ibiza Town where a 19-year-old man had gone into cardiac arrest.

‘He was brought out of cardiac arrest by the responders at the scene and stabilised before being transferred to Can Misses Hospital.

‘He was admitted to A&E at Can Misses at 6.30am but was confirmed dead at 7.22am today despite attempts to save him.’

A police spokesman confirmed the death was being probed, saying: ‘We are investigating and awaiting the results of the post-mortem.’

One well-placed insider said the question of whether the dead teenager had been drinking or consumed drugs before he collapsed would be investigated as part of the process.

There is no official information at this stage suggesting he was under the influence of drink or drugs before he went into cardiac arrest.

It is not yet clear if he lived on the island or was on holiday, and whether he was alone or with friends.
