A BRITISH tourist has tragically died after he was found unconscious in a hotel swimming pool in Cyprus.
The 21-year-old man who was on holiday in Paphos with his parents appears to have drowned last night in the hotel pool in the Tombs of the Kings area.
The young man was found unconscious in the pool of the King Evelthon Hotel at 6pm, Paphos police spokesman Michalis Nicolaou told the Cyprus Mail.
He was pulled out of the pool by lifeguards who performed CPR.
Another holidaymaker who was at the hotel described the incident as “heartbreaking to watch”.
She wrote in a Facebook post: “It really was heartbreaking to watch.
“They were working on him for ages but didn’t get anywhere.
“The poor woman that found him is in a right state bless her. It’s really made me stop and think about my life and how blessed I am”.
The 21-year-old was then taken to the Paphos General Hospital by ambulance.
Even though he was admitted into the intensive care unit he died at 8pm.
Police are currently investigating the incident and an autopsy is set to be carried out later today to determine the cause of his death.
Cops have ruled out the possibility of any criminal activity.
