Diver drowned

An English woman who died while diving off West Bay earlier this month drowned, according to a post mortem examination.

47-year-old Tina Diane Baxter of Colne, Lancashire, England was vacationing in Cayman and was on a dive with a group when she passed out while rising to the water’s surface.

CPR was administered on the dive boat and Mrs. Baxter was later rushed to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Mrs. Baxter’s death is believed to be the first watersports-related fatality in the Cayman Islands so far this year.
