Police: Texas tourist dies in Cayman Islands after dive

Associated Press

George Town, Cayman Islands — Authorities say an American tourist has died while scuba diving in waters off the Cayman Islands.

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service on Sunday identified the dead man as 70-year-old Stephen Edward Van Buren.

Van Buren was a resident of Conroe, Texas, a town about 40 miles north of Houston.

Police say Van Buren was scuba diving with others when he experienced difficulty in the water. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

He was diving off Grand Cayman, the main island in the British Caribbean chain with diving sites that often are ranked among the world’s best dive locations.
