An elderly man was found unresponsive in waters at the CSY Dock in Baugher’s Bay, Tortola moments ago.
BVI News understands that the man, who was in the company of another person, was swimming in the area.
Reports are that the companion was about to leave the water when he noticed the elderly man faced down and unresponsive in the water.
Our news centre was told that the man remained unresponsive despite attempts by persons in the area to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, more commonly known as CPR.
Emergency medical technicians, also known as EMT’s, were called to the scene and the senior citizen was transported to the Dr D Orlando Smith Hospital in Road Town.
It is unclear whether he regained consciousness.
