A 79-year-old man, Costakis Sofokleous from Pervolia, was found floating in the sea at the Kiti area on Tuesday.

Reports said that Sofokleous was spotted floating face down in the sea by other swimmers at around 10.30am. They carried him out to shore and tried to resuscitate him but without any success.

He was transferred to the Larnaca General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

An autopsy is to be carried out on Wednesday morning by state pathologist Eleni Antoniou to determine Sofokleous’ cause of death.
