The 63-year-old man lost consciousness while swimming at the local Blue Lagoon beach
An autopsy is to be carried out on the body of an Irish tourist who passed away after an incident in the sea off Paphos in Cyprus on Friday.
The 63-year-old man lost consciousness while swimming at the local Blue Lagoon beach and was brought to the shore.
He was then given first aid but was “unresponsive”, according to local reports.
He was later transferred to the emergency and accident department of the district’s general hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Police told in-cypus.com today that an autopsy is likely to be carried out on Monday.
“No foul play is suspected and his name still cannot be given out because not all his children have been informed yet,” thaw news site quoted local police as saying.
A member of the Irish embassy in Cyprus directed press queries to the Irish Embassy office in Dublin who did not return calls.
