LETHAL COCKTAIL: Two men die. File photograph.

TWO beggars have died in Almeria city after consuming alcohol laced with a chemical agent designed to kill algae.

The pair were hospitalised last Sunday after being found in Plaza San Sebastian complaining of severe abdominal pains.

And a third homeless man remains in critical condition after pedestrians called an ambulance.

The first victim suffered a heart attack before reaching the hospital while the second died two days later.

Investigators say that all three had mixed the contents of a box of pills they had found into their drinks.
