Heatwave claims two lives in Spain

A 17-year-old man was working in a field in Cordoba early on Friday when he began to feel dizzy from the heat. He jumped into a swimming pool on the property to cool down, but when he climbed out he suffered convulsions and was taken to hospital where he died. Thursday saw the death by heatstroke of an 80-year-old man in Valladolid, Castilla y Leon. The man collapsed at a street intersection at 5:50 pm and could not be revived.
