Another drowning in Venus beach area

A 36-YEAR-OLD man drowned in the Paphos district on Monday after he had attempted to go swimming at a dangerous beach.

Genadios Taskides was taken to Paphos general hospital around noon where doctors confirmed his death. According to police spokesman Nicos Tsiappis the man was found by other swimmers at the infamous Venus Beach, which is tagged as dangerous for swimming. Several people have lost their lives there over the years.

Head of the local municipality’s beach committee Andreas Chrysanthou told the Cyprus News Agency that Venus Beach was not suitable for swimmers and is seen as being extremely dangerous. He said the beach carries a red flag which warns of dangerous water conditions and is clearly labelled in three languages. Chrysanthou added that the beach should not be used by swimmers.
