(CNS): A 32-year-old man is currently in the Cayman Islands Hospital in a critical but stable condition following a water related incident at Rum Point in North Side on Sunday. Although details about what happened to the man have not yet been reported, an RCIPS spokesperson said that the police responded to a call at about 4:24pm on Sunday  that a man was in difficulties in the water off the popular beach area. Emergency crews found the man was still breathing but he was unresponsive. He was transported to the hospital in George Town by ambulance, where he is currently being treated.

The incident comes following a report of Cayman’s tenth water-related death on Friday since the beginning of the year after 73 year old James Klein of Erlanger, Kentucky, died as he was ascending to the surface during a dive off Little Cayman.
