A man has been intubated at Limassol Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit after he was spotted by the Limassol Lifeguard Unit floating face down in the sea and brought to shore.

In a post on social media on Monday describing the incident, the Unit said that the man was seen floating by a lifeguard on patrol east of the Crowne Plaza Hotel along Limassol’s coastal avenue next to a boat ramp.

“Our lifeguard immediately notified adjacent lifeguard towers that responded immediately.
