PARAMEDICS AND A lifeguard’s valiant efforts to resuscitate 57-year-old Clyde Leo Layne failed this evening after he was pulled from the sea at Enterprise, Christ Church.
Sometime between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. the Barbadian-born American citizen reportedly got into difficulties as he attempted to recover a remote control boat which had drifted away.
His brother, Ralph Layne, was with him when the incident occurred and spoke to the DAILY NATION.
“We had a remote controlled boat and it broke down so he went after it. I feel he had a heart attack because he was a good swimmer,” he said.
The deceased and his wife Anne were staying in the nearby Scarborough district. They have two children, who are currently in New York. (TS/CA)
