Man dies after being pulled from water near Rum Point

Friday 3 March update: Police have now released the name of the victim. He is Mongkol Srilamai, age 44, a resident on island and originally from Thailand.

It marks the second water-related death in the Cayman Islands this year. Police say the man’s identity will be released once relatives are notified.
