Tragedy in West Bay after diver dies

Tragedy struck again Cayman this morning after a pensioner got into distress while diving, and later died.

Shortly after 9.30 am (February 11), officers responded to a report of a person in distress at the West Bay Dock. A woman had been out diving when she encountered difficulties, lost consciousness, and was brought back to shore.

Emergency services rushed her to hospital via ambulance, where she was subsequently pronounced dead.

She was a 65-year-old visitor from the US.

Our thoughts are with her loved ones.
