MEIRAS, Spain, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Massive waves in Meiras, Spain, killed a man who was on the beach holding a vigil over the ashes of his late father, rescue workers said.

The body of Juan Bedoya Lopez, 50, was found on the shore. Three others were also swept out to sea.

Two are still missing, while one made it safely back to shore, TheLocal.es reported.

Poor weather conditions are making the search the two missing family members difficult, Meiras Mayor José Antonio Vigo Lago said.
