Fears are mounting as searches continue for five university students who went missing on a beach in Meco during the early hours of Sunday morning.
Seven students in total were on the Moinho de Baixo beach in Alfarim when they were washed into the sea by a wave.
One has been found dead and another survived the ordeal.
The survivor told search and rescue teams that the group had been sitting near the water’s edge when they were taken by surprise by a freak wave and washed into the sea.
Searches have resumed on Wednesday for a fourth day for the five university students who are still missing after being dragged into the sea on Meco beach by a freak wave.
