A 73-year-old American tourist
died Friday following a dive off Little Cayman.
About 12.25pm Friday, the man,
who was on an organised boat dive at Bloody Bay Wall, got into difficulty
while ascending and lost consciousness. He was transported to shore on
the dive boat while the crew carried out CPR, Royal Cayman Islands Police said.
A nurse met the boat at Salt
Rock dock. She continued CPR as the man was taken to the local clinic in the
dive company’s vehicle and was pronounced dead on arrival.
The man was on holiday in Little
Cayman with his wife.
There would appear to be no
suspicious circumstances surrounding the death, police said.
