    Exactly 3.31am thank you. I was not talking about oceans, lakes and ponds on this island or any other island. This terrible incident happened in CAYMAN in the SEA! Where quite a lot of deaths have unfortunately happened, and taken not only the lives of tourists but indeed our very own here also……….some people are so petty and write uncalled for ridiculous comments about such a sad loss. You need a proper job 11.58am. You clearly got too much time on your hands.

    He unfortunately died on a wave runner, this was nothing to do with snorkeling.
