Dubai: An Indian expat drowned at the Jumeirah Beach in Dubai during an outing with his family, the media reported on Sunday.

On Saturday morning, John Preetam Paul, 40, had gone to take a dip when the tragedy happened, according to family and friends. His three children, along with his sister and her husband were on a visit to Dubai, reports the Khaleej Times.

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

Speaking to Khaleej Times, Paul's wife said that the kids and the visiting family had gone to the beach early in the morning.
