A man died Friday while diving on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, just days after two French tourists perished snorkelling in the same area, police said. The Cairns Post said the latest victim was a 60-year-old from England who was travelling with his wife and who died diving on Agincourt Reef off the popular tourist resort of Port Douglas.”We were called to Agincourt Reef after a man in his 60s suffered a medical condition. He is now deceased,” a Queensland police spokesman told AFP, adding that he was believed to be British, but this was not confirmed.

Crew on the vessel tried to revive him with a defibrillator and contacted emergency services who flew a doctor to the reef, but attempts to resuscitate him failed.
