Canadian drowns in Cuba
Foreign Affairs confirms that a Canadian drowned at a beach in Cuba this week but is not confirming a report that the man is a Montrealer.
The report says he ran into trouble while swimming in heavy surf off a beach in Varadaro. An eyewitness says lifeguards and passersby tried to help him but were driven back by the waves.
The report says one Good Samaritan who tried to rescue him also perished.
