Apr 17 - Man Rescued From Sea Passes Away

The RGP says that the 64-year-old British man pulled out of the water by police officers this morning at the East Side reclamation, by Catalan Bay, has passed away.

Arthur Timothy Lawson-Cruttenden, an ex-triathlete who was visiting family in Gibraltar, got into difficulties after going body surfing at the East Side this morning.

He was pulled out of the sea by Traffic officers who were the first on scene. Despite intense and protracted efforts by the officers, GHA Ambulance Service personnel and the staff in the A&E Department at St Bernard’s Hospital Mr Lawson could not be revived.

A Coroner’s enquiry has been initiated.

The RGP wishes to convey to Mr Lawson’s family and friends its most sincere condolences for their loss.
