"We believe 2 local men, Good Samaritans, noticed the man unresponsive in the water and they recovered him to the shore where a local doctor, who happened to be there at the time, immediately initiated Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation efforts, assisted by bystanders," said Craig Lambinon, NSRI spokesperson.

"At 06h43 NSRI Bakoven were alerted. On arrival on the scene advanced life support CPR continued but despite extensive efforts sadly the man was declared deceased," he added.

Lambinon said the body of the man was taken into the care of Government Health Forensic Pathology Services. Police have opened an inquest docket.
