Two arrested for pool death (update 2)

Police on Monday arrested two men in connection with the death of 18-year-old British Cypriot Savvakis Alexandrou who was found at the bottom of a swimming pool in Ayia Napa early on Monday.

The men, a father and son aged 63 and 33, are the owners of the Ayia Napa holiday apartments where Alexandrou was staying since August 8. He was due to leave Cyprus on August 23.

The pair were arrested in the afternoon for operating the establishment without a permit from the Cyprus Tourism Organisation. They were also operating the swimming pool without a permit from the municipality.

A state pathologist who examined the scene ruled out foul play. A post mortem is scheduled for Tuesday to determine the exact cause of death.

Famagusta police spokesman Giorgos Economou said Alexandrou was discovered at 7am at the bottom of the pool at the tourist complex where he was staying by other swimmers.

They pulled him out and gave him CPR while waiting for an ambulance but the teen was pronounced dead on arrival at the Paralmini general hospital.
