Tourist dies while on Ishigaki scuba trip

Date Posted: 2012-05-04

A 68-year-old self-employed man from Tokyo is dead after he went into a cardiopulmonary arrest while onboard a boat during a scuba diving trip in Ishigaki Sunday.

Ishigaki Police say the man started vomiting and then suffered an obvious heart attack. The boat, anchored about 1,300 meters off shore off Kawahira-Ishizaki district of Ishigaki, immediately returned to the port, and the man was taken to a hospital. The man was confirmed dead about an hour later.

Both the Ishigaki Coast Guard Office and local police are investigating the cause of his death. The man had arrived on a visit to Ishigaki Island as a tourist a day earlier.
