Daijiworld Media Network - Dubai

Dubai, Jun 16: An Indian man drowned at Jumeirah Beach when he had gone to take a dip in the water to wash off sand from his body on Friday, June 15, reports Khaleej Times.

John Preetam Paul (40) is the deceased person.

John’s three children , Susan (10), Aaron (8) and Ryan (6) were also with him along with his sister and husband who were on a visit.

"The police have confirmed that the cause of the death was cardiac arrest," Jijo Jalal, John's former boss told Khaleej Times.

Paul worked as a Sales Head for Gilli FM, a UAE-based radio station. He has been a UAE resident for more than 14 years.

 

"Just before leaving, he ventured back into the sea to take a dip. The family noticed his body floating in the water within minutes after he left them on the shore." said John’s wife Eviline (40).

She also said the John was a good swimmer, and it was hard to believe that such tragedy happened.

"I always go with him and the kids to these outings. But since his sister was visiting, I stayed at home with my mother, and thought it would be good to give the brother and sister some quality time," informed Eviline. .

Paul's sister had flown in to Dubai on Friday to spend time with her brother and family.

According to Jalal, family members and other visitors pulled Paul's body out of the water and called for an ambulance. Then he was rushed to the Saudi German Hospital but he could not be saved.

John’s body will be repatriated on Sunday to his home city of Bengaluru.
