GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (AP) — Cayman Islands police have named the 73-year-old American tourist who died while scuba diving last week.

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said Sunday the dead tourist was James Klein of Erlanger, Kentucky.

Police say Klein died Wednesday after losing consciousness while ascending along an underwater cliff. He was given CPR and transported to shore but was declared dead at a clinic.

He was vacationing with his wife in Little Cayman, a tiny island in the British territory that is often ranked among the world's best dive locations.
