A 25-year-old British tourist was rescued unhurt yesterday after a swim in the sea off the Playa de Palma turned into a nightmare. The holiday maker, who was taken to a Palma clinic, threw caution to the wind, storm conditions and high seas and headed in for a swim, only to find himself unable to make it back to the beach. Eye witnesses called the police at around 3pm and, as scores of tourists, wondering what to do in the rain watched, a full scale rescue operation was put into action with helicopter and air sea rescue launch support. The search continued after the tourist was rushed to hospital as eyewitnesses reported that a couple of people had dived in to save the holiday makers, however no sign of any further swimmers was found.
