Bruce Constantine

A 45-year-old man from Maraval drowned yesterday afternoon at Tyrico Bay.

According to reports, Bruce Constantine was bathing in the sea when he got into difficulties and went under.

Sea bathers alerted the lifeguards who sprung into action and managed to pull him to the shore.

However, Constantine, lifeguards said, did not respond to resuscitation efforts.

Lifeguards are warning sea bathers of rough waters and strong rip currents and are urging sea bathers not to go into the water beyond waist height.
