Tourist who died in Ayia Napa likely drowned


A 53-year-old Danish tourist found dead in Ayia Napa likely died of drowning, though the exact cause of death is still unknown, police said on Tuesday.

Famagusta police spokesman Steve Theodoulou said officers at the Ayia Napa police station were alerted to the fact that lifeguards had pulled an unconscious man out of the sea on Pernera beach at around 2pm on Sunday.

Jorgen Poulsen, aged 53, was on holiday in Cyprus with his wife.

An autopsy was carried out on Tuesday at Larnaca general hospital though “the exact cause of death has not been confirmed. The most likely cause is drowning at sea,” Theodoulou said.

Samples were taken for laboratory, histopathological and toxicological tests. Ayia Napa police continues investigations.
