Investigations continue into reservoir drowning

Police on Monday said they are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 38-year-old man who drowned after his car fell into the Tamassos water reservoir on Sunday.

A search and rescue operation was launched on Sunday to locate the 38-year-old, whose vehicle – a double cabin truck – had fallen into the reservoir at around 11.25 am. The man’s body was located in the submerged car some three hours later and was brought to shore by divers.

Police said the man is a foreign national who was living in Larnaca and had gone to the reservoir with a friend to fish.

The car, located at a five-metre depth around 10 metres from the shore, was extracted by the water by the fire service.

The body bears no external injuries police said following an on-site examination of the body by a state pathologist on Sunday. A post mortem is scheduled for Tuesday.
