Tourist in dive fatality identified as Texan

A 70-year-old American tourist who died last week on a dive off North West Point in West Bay, Grand Cayman, has been identified as Stephen Edward Van Buren of Conroe, Texas.  

Mr. Van Buren was on a dive when he experienced difficulty in the water, police said. He was transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital by ambulance where he was pronounced dead. 

He was in Cayman for a vacation last week with his son, police said, and had arrived on island the day before the fatal accident.  

Mr. Van Buren is the sixth person to die in a water-related accident in the Cayman Islands during 2015.
