Paramedics performed CPR but she died at the scene this afternoon in Teulada-Moraira, Costa Blanca in Spain. 

She is thought to have lived in the area and was in sports bar La Sabatera with family and friends at the time.

She said: “The alarm was raised around 2pm local time. The woman who died had been inside the bar-restaurant where the tragedy occurred.
