(CMR) We posted earlier today on our Facebook page that there were rumors of a drowning.
We now have confirmation that a 76-year-old Doriel McLean from West Bay died earlier today while fishing off the North Side coast. Police officers around 12:45 p.m. responded to a call of a person in distress on the beach in the vicinity of Rum Point Road.
Emergency responders took him to the Cayman Islands Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, police said.
An outpouring of messages asking for prayer for the family have already begun. Our CMR sources indicate that he had known heart related issues.
We extend our sincere condolences to his family.
