Benalmadena ,Daniel Whelan died at the weekend

10:22 |

Daniel Whelan died at the weekend while in Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol.
Early reports suggested that the 18-year-old, who was celebrating the end of his A-level exams, had been struck down by meningitis. But the Health Protection Agency has now said it was unlikely his death was caused by the infection. Hugh Lamont, a regional spokesman for the agency, said: “We understand there is currently no evidence the illness was caused by an infection of any sort. We are awaiting the results of further tests." It is understood Daniel was taken ill while on a night out with friends on Saturday. They took him back to where they were staying in the resort and called an ambulance when his condition deteriorated. He died later in hospital. His friends, all pupils at Bolton School, flew home on Monday.
His parents, Mike and Catherine Whelan, who live in Culcheth, have flown out to Spain. Daniel was due to beginning studying at Loughborough University in the autumn.
