Dead tourist named

On Friday, the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service named the women who died after swimming off Seven Mile Beach on Wednesday, June 3.

The woman was Goretti Tak Wai Wong, a Canadian National of Chinese descent. Mrs Wong, 62, of Ontario, had been a cruise ship passenger aboard Liberty of the Seas and had been visiting Cayman with her husband.

Mrs Wong had been swimming off Royal Palms when she became overly tired. Her husband assisted her back to shore with the help of a passing wave runner but unfortunately

she passed out. CPR was administered on shore and medics and police attended the scene.

Mrs Wong was taken to hospital but unfortunately was pronounced dead.

The RCIPS will now prepare a file for the coroner.
