American medical doctor who went for sightseeing vacation at Ibiza with his fiancée, has died tragically.
According to sources, Dr. Daniel Sirovich, 34, from Kearny New Jersey and his fiancée, Kristi Kelly, 28, originally from Staten Island, New York, were sightseeing Wednesday near a cliff on Ibiza – an island off the coast of Spain when he fell 82 feet, according to a GoFundMe page started by friends.
Sirovich and Kelly, who is studying to be a physician’s assistant were engaged in 2016 while on vacation in Germany. The couple was planning to marry next year, according to reports.
EuroWeekly reported that an off-duty nurse at the scene of the accident tried to save Sirovich, but he was already dead, resulting to emergency responders calling off a helicopter sent to airlift him to a local hospital.
According to emergency services, Sirovich was climbing with his fiancée when the accident happened.
Sirovich’s friend, Gui Ramos, wrote on the fundraising page.
“It’s with a heavy heart I’m creating this GoFundMe page on behalf of Danny’s family. Yesterday, Danny and his fiance were sightseeing near a cliff in sa Pedrera de Cala d’Hort in Ibiza, where he slipped and fell 82 ft… taking his life away.”
“Danny was, by far, the person with the most life that we had the pleasure to meet. He gave 120% in everything he did, from his studies, to work, to loving Kristi, his family, and friends”, Ramos added.
NJ.com reported that Sirovich, who studied at Rutgers University and recently worked at the Kendall Regional Medical Center in Miami, Fla, was scheduled to take on a new job in an intensive-care unit in Boston.

It’s also home to quiet villages, yoga retreats and beaches, from Platja d’en Bossa, lined with hotels, bars and shops, to quieter sandy coves backed by pine-clad hills found all around the coast.
Cliff Diving in Ibiza, the excitement of jumping from the rocks to the sea is one of most popular activities at the location.
