British man and his young son have drowned off the coast of Majorca, the Foreign Office has confirmed. George Selby and his son Louis died at Cala Antena, a small bay near the resort of Calas de Mallorca, in the south-east of the Spanish island. Mr Selby's mother, Christine, said it was a "devastating loss". The young boy is understood to have been hit by a wave and swept off the rocks into the sea. His father jumped in to try to save him but both drowned. Other relatives who were nearby raised the alarm. Mrs Selby issued a statement through the Foreign Office saying: "My son George Selby died trying to save his son Louis Selby. "George was passionate about his wife Abigail and their three sons. This tragedy that has befallen this family has devastated the lives of his wife, sons, and mother. George, Louis and their family were - and still are - loved by all that knew them." She asked the media to allow them to grieve for "a truly heroic husband, father, son, brother" and for " Louis, our little bear." A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said: "We are aware of the tragic deaths of two British nationals in Majorca. "We are providing consular assistance to the family."
