Christopher Barrington is fifth Brit to die in Ibiza this summer after drowning in hotel swimming pool - 10th Aug 2010

A British tourist has been found drowned in a swimming pool at popular summer holiday destination Ibiza, and is the fifth young UK holidaymaker to die on the island this summer.

Christopher Barrington died in the swimming pool at the three-star, £130-a-night Hotel Puchet in the party resort of San Antonio, where some of the world's biggest DJs spin.

The 31-year-old was pulled unconscious from the pool at 4.30pm yesterday and despite the best efforts of the paramedics, who tried to revive him, he died poolside.

It is understood that Mr Barrington was not a guest at the 212-room hotel - he was, in fact, residing at the two-star Hotel S'Anfora close by.

Police are investigating why he was in the pool at the Puchet.

'A 31-year-old British tourist died in a hotel swimming pool on Tuesday afternoon,' a spokesman for the Civil Guard, investigating the death, said.

'We believe he drowned. We are waiting for the results of a post-mortem examination. At this stage we do not know what caused him to drown.' Read More
