Police name tourist who drowned

An American tourist who drowned after she fell off a jet ski was named by police yesterday as Yvonne Aites.

The 62-year-old cruise ship passenger, from Massachusetts, is believed to have fallen into the water off Cambridge Beaches in Sandys and lost consciousness at about 11am on Monday.

The woman was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and efforts were made to revive her en route, but she was later pronounced dead by doctors.

An autopsy confirmed the cause of her death as drowning.

A police family liaison officer has been assigned to Ms Aites’s family.
