21-year-old man dies after night on the beach (Updated)

A 21-year-old Greek man was found floating dead early Saturday morning, at the beach in Oroklini, police said.

According to police, the man, Avraam Kousounides, was found unconscious in the water, after he and three friends had camped out at the beach for the night.

Police said his three friends called authorities to the scene at 7:30am, after they woke up and found his unconscious body floating in the water.

At the scene, first aid responders attempted to resuscitate the man but were unable to do so.

The man was taken to Larnaca general, where doctors pronounced him dead.

Reports said his three friends told authorities the group from Nicosia went to the beach to spend the night.  They said during the night three of the four had used drugs and went for a swim.

Police are continuing to take further statements from his friends.

The exact cause of death will be determined by a post-mortem examination.
