A 61 year old man was found floating unconscious in the sea at Limassol’s Akti Olympion on Sunday morning, but despite efforts by lifeguards and an ambulance crew he was pronounced dead.

The Limassol Lifeguards Association said the unconscious man was spotted at around 10 am, about 20 metres from the shore by lifeguards who brought him to shore and tried to resuscitate him.

Efforts were also made by an ambulance crew at the scene and on the way to Limassol Hospital but they too were unsuccessful, the association said on their Facebook page.
