A 56-year-old British tourist has died during an inflatable sofa ride on the Ionian island of Cephalonia, coast guard officials said Wednesday.

Initial reports suggest the 56-year-old died of a heart attack.

Two more passengers on the craft, also holidaymakers from Britain, were said to be in good health.

The 37-year-old operator of the speedboat towing the water-sled has been detained by police.
