Energy correlations between γ-ray transitions and the prompt proton decay line in 58Cu were studied by means of the fusion-evaporation reaction 40Ca(24Mg,1α1p1n) using the EUROBALL spectrometer coupled to ancillary detector devices. A lifetime of 0.06<τ<0.58 ps for the 8915 keV proton-decaying state in 58Cu is deduced.
