British teen dies in Malia

The parents of a 17-year-old British tourist who was the half-brother of a Premier League soccer player flew to Crete on Friday to identify the teenager’s body after he was found dead on a building site at the Malia resort. Authorities said late on Thursday that the body of the Briton who went missing on Tuesday had been found. The 17-year-old was later identified as Andre Young, the half-brother of Aston Villa and England defender Luke Young. One witness said the teenager had been drinking heavily before attempting to make his way back to his hotel. Police on Crete are not treating Young’s death as suspicious, indicating that his head injuries resulted from a heavy fall. The behavior of British tourists in Malia has again attracted attention this summer after another visitor suffered second-degree burns when a Greek woman allegedly poured her drink over him and then set him alight. Her trial has been adjourned and is due to resume this week.
