Tourist dies after dive

An English woman vacationing in Cayman last weekend died after witnesses said she passed out during a dive in the waters near West Bay.

Royal Cayman Islands Police officers said 911 was called around 10.40am Saturday about a 47-year-old woman aboard a dive boat who was unconscious and being brought back to shore at West Bay Public Beach.

CPR was administered on the boat, and paramedics arrived to take the woman to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Police said it appeared the woman lost consciousness during the dive while returning to the surface.

What caused her death wasn’t clear by press time. A post mortem has been scheduled.
