By Staff Reporter

A 57-year-old British national drowned on Thursday while diving at a popular dive site in Larnaca.

The man was diving with friends at the site of the Zenobia wreck, when he lost consciousness. Fellow divers brought him ashore and notified authorities.

The diver was taken to Larnaca general hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead on arrival.

Naval Police divers meanwhile searched the site in an effort to determine the circumstances under which the man drowned.

An autopsy on the man’s body will be carried out on Friday to determine the cause of death.
