A DIVER has been rushed to hospital in a serious condition after she began to suffer breathing difficulties off the Cala Martina beach in Santa Eulàlia (Ibiza) today.

Emergency services say the woman, 45 – and thought to be British - rose to the surface gasping for breath, for causes that have not yet been confirmed.

She was taken to Can Misses hospital, where she remains on assisted breathing in intensive care due to the seriousness of her condition.

Medical staff say she has fluid on her lungs, which could either be the cause or the result of her respiratory problems whilst in the water.

She was said to be slipping to and from life and death when she was brought to the hospital, but is now considered to be in a serious but steady condition.
