Dutch tourist dies after swallowing his car keys as Spanish officials couldn't understand his plea for help



A tourist swallowed his car key and choked to death because the Spanish authorities who he was asking to help him could not understand him.



The 37-year-old from the Netherlands was on holiday with his family in Barcelona when the tragic incident happened.



He allegedly went to a supermarket in the Sarria district of the Spanish city, where he was "in an evident state of excitement and causing altercations" in the store last Thursday, August 5.



The man was pleading for help as he had mistakenly swallowed his car key but he was kicked out of the store because supermarket employees could not understand what he was trying to say.


Staff at the supermarket notified the Guardia Urbana, the municipal police force in Barcelona, Euro Weekly News reports.Latest Post
