A British tourist is in a coma in hospital in Ibiza after reportedly taking drugs and going berserk on a beach in Ibiza. The 20-year-old holidaymaker, named only as D.A.R, was rushed to hospital after being overcome by police. Witnesses said he was ‘screaming and struggling’ and officers had to bring in extra resources to get him into an ambulance.

It is understood he finally collapsed with heatstroke and suffered a cardiac arrest brought on by ingesting some sort of toxic substances, say police.

He is now in the intensive care unit of Can Misses hospital where his condition is described as serious. The incident happened in the bay of San Antonio, the Ibiza resort favoured by young Britons but, like Magaluf, desperate to get away from its ‘anything goes’ image and negative publicity. The 20-year-old was staying in a local hotel and at one stage, was reportedly thrown out of a bar on the beachfront for reasons which have not been specified.

Then, apparently under the influence of drink or drugs, he marched into a dive centre, forced his way in and caused damage. He was spotted by a police patrol car who managed to control him whilst they called for an ambulance.

‘The young man kept struggling and screaming so reinforcements were called in,’ said local newspaper Diario de Ibiza. He is now in intensive care at the Can Misses hospital (pictured) where his condition is described as serious

He was then taken to a local health centre where he suffered a cardiac arrest but medics managed to revive him after one minute of resuscitation and he was stabilised.

He was then transferred to the intensive care unit of Can Misses hospital. A spokesman said his temperature had reached 41.5C.

‘We believe these symptoms were caused because he was under the influence of toxic substances,’ he added. What type of drugs the tourist had taken have not been specified.
