Three members of a cash strapped Spanish family have been found dead after having gone on to eat out of date fish supermarket giveaways.
Authorities told the deceased involved that of Enrique Caño, 61, his wife Concepción, 50, and their daughter Tamara, 14, who were found dead at their home in Alcalá de Guadaíra, near Seville, this past Saturday morning just hours after having eaten contaminated fish.
The couple’s other daughter, 13-year-old Vanessa, according to El Mundo was also taken seriously ill and remains on life support.
The family had purportedly turned to out-of-date food after the father lost his job as a plumber two years ago.
The family house was seized by the bank, nevertheless the family continued to live in the property as de facto squatters.
Caño was reportedly a regular visitor to food stores at closing time, joining other unemployed locals in taking expired products from staff.
He also earned money by collecting and selling second-hand clothes.
Extended family members are now considering legal action against the Andalusian health service.
They have gone on to claim paramedics were called to the family home early Saturday but despite the parents and children being violently ill, the decision was made not to take them to hospital.
Spain is deep into 5 year long plus recession that shows no signs of abating.
According to Vanguardia the recent recession has left more than 500,000 homeless families, dramatically raised the unemployment rate for the first time slashing the six million people or 27 percent of the active population and increased the number of poor who are first at risk of falling into a situation of “social exclusion.”
