SATURDAY, JULY 7: A member of an overseas singing group was killed a few minutes after 10am this morning while riding his rental scooter.

The 80-year-old man
 was travelling west on South Road in the area of South Shore Park in Warwick, when he lost control of his cycle and went through a wooden railing.

Two bystanders administered CPR until the Fire Service arrived.

The tourist, from Florida, was eventually taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

An eyewitness said other members of the singing group seemed to be calm but other concerned people were seen crying.

Police said no further information will be given until the next of kin has been notified.
