Police name tourist after jet ski death
An American visitor who died after falling off a jet ski yesterday has been named by police as Yvonne Aites.
Police said the 62-year-old cruise ship passenger, from Massachusetts, fell into the water off Cambridge Beaches in Sandys and lost consciousness.
The woman was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by boat and efforts were made to revive her on the journey, but she was later pronounced dead.
An autopsy confirmed the cause of death as drowning, and a family liaison officer has been assigned to help her loved ones.
A couple who rented a boat from H2O Watersports, which was not responsible for the jet ski hire, witnessed the incident, which happened at about 11am as Ms Aites took part in a tour.
