Royal Cayman Islands Police confirmed Sunday that the body of another young man who jumped from the Pedro Castle cliffs was recovered in the sea.
The 21-year-old was located Sunday afternoon by marine search teams, according to RCIPS Chief Inspector Harlan Powery.
Mr. Powery said it appeared the young man, who was from East End, had been jumping off the cliffs in the same location that 16-year-old Justin Henry jumped to his death from last week.
Officers were bringing the dead man’s body to shore late Sunday afternoon. Hundreds of people had gathered at Pedro St. James Sunday afternoon to await news of the young man’s fate.
Police had earlier said they would seek to close off the waters around Pedro St. James Castle to swimmers and divers because of the tragedy involving Justin Henry.
The Pedro cliffs have recently become a popular hang out for young people, according to Mr. Powery.
