US tourist dies in Brac diving accident

A 65-year-old man died Wednesday after a scuba diving accident on Cayman Brac.

James B. Campbell of Kentucky was pronounced dead at about 11 a.m. at Faith Hospital.

Police said officers responded to reports of an unconscious man being taking to the Brac Reef dock on a dive boat at 10 a.m.

Mr. Campbell received CPR on the boat but did not regain consciousness, according to police.

This is the second scuba-related death in 2016. In late January, Michael English, 54, of Colorado died while visiting Grand Cayman to celebrate his 30th wedding anniversary. He ran into difficulties while diving off North West Point.
