“Accident” killed Irishman found floating in Vilamoura marina

After the sad discovery of the body of an Irish holidaymaker in the water of Vilamoura marina earlier this month, an autopsy has determined that the 40-year-old died from drowning, almost certainly after accidentally falling into the water during a night out.

There were no signs of violence or anything that could point to crime having been behind the death, reports national tabloid Correio da Manhã – and testimonies from friends that the man told them he was going out for a drink fit with the premise that this was nothing more than a tragedy.

The Irishman was staying at hotel Dom Pedro Marina on what was understood to have been a trip with a group of friends.
