In this week's The Local List we take look at some of the weirdest deaths on Spain soil. Happy Friday 13th!


If you've been avoiding black cats and ladders all day, The Local knows the feeling.

To honour this black occasion we've put together a gallery of the strangest deaths in Spanish history.

From the windsurfer who crashed into a hotel 50 metres from the beach to the king who choked on his goose, we've unearthed enough weird deaths to put you off leaving the house all day.

By the way, don't fret, Friday 13th isn't an unlucky date in Spain.

Spaniards have instead Tuesday 13th (Martes trece).
