A 58-year-old Russian tourist was found floating dead on Wednesday in the sea off Oroklini, in Larnaca.

According to police, the Oroklini police station was informed at around 11.30am that a man was seen floating unconscious in the sea off an Oroklini beach and was brought to shore by other swimmers.
