One of the men was said to have landed on a hut used by lifeguards.

Daniel, Jayden and 24-year-old Lewis Higgins, had all been trying to take a selfie on a wall overlooking Punta Prima beach near Torrevieja at around 7.30pm pn Wednesday. Daniel Mee died at the scene from the fall, Jayden Dolman was taken to hospital with serious head injuries where he died earlier today (Thursday) and Lewis Higgins suffered a panic attack and was treated in hospital but was not physically injured. The Civil Guard sources said they had climbed over a safety barrier above the beach to take a picture before falling onto a lifeguard hut below. The Civil Guard reported: 'The local British consulate has been informed. One of the men died at the scene and another was taken to hospital by helicopter. He is in Alicante Hospital where he has been sedated. The third man was physically unharmed but suffered a panic attack and was taken to Torrevieja Hospital. It appears the men were taking a photo. The initial reports were that they had fallen from a height of around 40 feet. It is too early at this stage to speculate on exactly what happened and the police investigation into the cause is still in its infancy.' Their deaths come less than three days after Luke Freeman, 19, from Reading, Berks, died after plunging from holiday apartments in the Costa Brava resort of Lloret de Mar. A spokesperson at the British Foreign Office said: "We are supporting the families of two British men following their deaths in Alicante, and are in contact with the Spanish authorities.
