A 25-year-old tourist from Serbia drowned on Sunday afternoon in Limassol after been carried away by waves.

The man, who was swimming near Le Meridien hotel in Parekklisia, was brought out to shore by a family of tourists from South London, who rushed to help him as soon as they noticed him.

Frank Dargan followed by his two children, Paige and Connor, found the 25-year-old floating face down beneath them and pulled his body out to the surface and brought him out to shore, with the help of a lifeguard.

They tried to resuscitate him before he was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

A postmortem is scheduled for Monday to determine the exact cause of death.

The 25-year-old arrived in Cyprus three days ago and was staying with relatives. Reports said he was not a good swimmer.
