A man’s cause of death in Peyia was said to be drowning according to forensic examiners, following reports that a friend had spotted the Paphos resident unconscious in the water at Coral Bay.

According to local media, a 29-year-old man described as a Romanian national working in Paphos went to Coral Beach with a friend on Sunday early afternoon, when at some point he went in the water for a swim.

His friend reportedly spotted him unconscious in the water and tried to get his attention but to no avail.

He then notified authorities and an ambulance with lifeguards onboard arrived at the scene and pulled him out of the water around 4:30pm, according to local media.

The swimmer was rushed to the Emergency Room at Paphos General Hospital, where doctors on duty could not revive him.

State forensic pathologist Angeliki Papetta, who examined the body, ruled the cause of death was asphyxia, drowning by suffocation through liquid.

The manner of death has not yet been disclosed, pending results from lab tests, while police reportedly ruled out foul play.
