(CMR) Just weeks after the water-related deaths of two American visitors to the Cayman Islands in separate incidents, another tourist has died in a water-related incident. The most recent death is a 50-year-old visitor from the United States who died on Tuesday, 5 July.
This is the fourth water-related death since April. Another visitor died while snorkeling in April.
Police reports are that shortly before 5:30 pm, officers responded to a report of a person in distress in the waters off West Bay Road, west of Marsh Road. A man had entered the water when he experienced difficulties and lost consciousness.
He was taken from the water by persons nearby, who conducted CPR until emergency services arrived. He was then transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital via ambulance and subsequently pronounced dead.
