John McKenna Wiki – John McKenna Biography
John McKenna, 22, of Carlisle, Cumbria, died following a fall from the third story at his three-star hotel in the party town of San Antonio yesterday morning.
He was pronounced dead at the scene following desperate attempts by paramedics to save him after the alarm was raised at around 11am. Electrician John, who was staying at the Azuline Hotel Llevant, is understood to have played for Carlisle City Sunday League Premier side Scotby FC. Pal and former Carlisle United player Josh Dixon admitted he was ‘heartbroken’, writing in a social media tribute: ‘Absolutely heartbroken writing this. One of my closest mates all the way through school. ‘Wherever you went you would put a smile on someone’s face. Will be a huge miss to us all. Rest easy big man.’
Police are not currently treating the incident as suspicious. Helen Ullyart described the news of his untimely death as ‘soul destroying.’ Scotby FC said in a tweet late yesterday: ‘Today we lost a legend, a brilliant player but an even better person. Never forgotten but loved always. RIP big John.’ Initial reports claimed he had fallen from the fifth floor but well-placed sources said he had been on the third floor balcony of a room where he is understood to have been staying with a friend. An investigation being led by the Civil Guard, and coordinated by a local investigating judge, is ongoing. The friend John was with is understood to have been quizzed by police, but there is no suggestion the tourist’s death is in any way suspicious. There has not yet been any update on the circumstances leading up to his death. A police insider said in the aftermath of the tragedy: ‘This incident is still under investigation. All lines of inquiry are being explored and it is still too early to say exactly what happened.’ ‘The incident is still being investigated.’ The alarm was raised just before 11 am yesterday.
