He was hospitalized with serious injuries from Paraga beach but later passed away.

It is unclear what caused the ship to crash.

Last week five British holidaymakers were rescued from their burning motorboat after it burst into flames while sailing off the coast of Greece.

The ship was about 250 feet from shore near Zante when it suddenly exploded into a fireball, trapping the tourists on board.

The helpless vacationers were forced to jump into the water to escape the inferno that engulfed their boat.

Shocking footage shows thick plumes of black smoke billowing into the sky as the wreck continues to burn.

The crew frantically stepped on water as they watched the motorboat being consumed by the fire.

Luckily, a nearby boat spotted the distressed Britons and rushed to help them return to shore.

They dragged them aboard and brought them back to shore, where they received medical treatment after their ordeal.

At least one of the passengers was said to have suffered burns when the boat was engulfed in flames.
