An elderly swimmer was pronounced dead after being taken to Polis Chrysochous hospital late on Saturday afternoon.

According to the police, the 73-year-old resident of Nicosia was swimming in the sea near the Latsi camping area.

When his wife was unable to see him she called the coast guard, which sent out a search party and found him unconscious near the beach’s breakwater.

He was taken to the accident and emergency department at the hospital where he died a short while later.

The exact cause of death is expected to be revealed after an autopsy is carried out.
