Police said a 31-year-old male visitor was spotted underneath a motorcycle in Paralimni late Thursday night, around 11:40pm, with very serious injuries but the conditions surrounding his wounds were not immediately clear.
The visitor, described as a British national, was rushed to the Emergency Room at Famagusta General Hospital. He was then transferred to Nicosia General where doctors said the 31-year-old had sustained a broken skull, internal bleeding around the brain, broken ribs, and various other bone fractures.
Knews has learned that investigators had not fully established early on whether the tourist was in fact on the motorcycle or even driving at the time of the incident.
An official police report did not describe the case as a road accident under investigation but stated that the man had a motorcycle helmet.
“It appears to be a collision but it has yet to be determined, as it was dark when officers first arrived on the scene,” a police communications officer told Knews Friday morning.
Police headquarters called on members of the public to come forward with any known information concerning the incident.
