British tourist dies at Peyia Sea Caves

An autopsy will be carried out to determine the exact cause of death of a 78-year-old British tourist who lost consciousness while swimming at the Peyia Sea Caves on Monday.

The Briton and his wife arrived for a holiday in Cyprus on June 28.

The woman had already got out of the sea on Monday when she spotted her husband floating in the water.

Other swimmers helped get the 78-year-old to the shore where he was given first aid until an ambulance arrived but he did not gain consciousness.

Doctors at Paphos General Hospital pronounced him dead soon after arrival.

According to his wife, the man had a history of heart trouble.
