Cruise tourist found dead at Long Bay Beach

BVI News understands that the body of a cruise tourist was found floating in waters at Long Bay Beach earlier this week.

It’s understood that the woman, who is of Chinese descent, disembarked a cruise ship along with her husband and other members of their family. When the group arrived at Long Bay Beach, the now deceased woman reportedly left to explore the venue.

Later on, the family was alerted that the woman was lying face down in the water. Other tourists who were at the scene tried to assist by doing CPR once the woman was retreived from the water.

Shortly after, BVI medical staff arrived on the scene and continued to render CPR to the unconscious woman.

It’s understood that an ambulance arrived some time after and rushed the woman to the Dr D. Orlando Smith Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Highly placed sourecs told our news centre there are no indications that foul play was involved in her death.

BVI News has not yet confirmed whether the woman drowned but sources say medics beleive that to be the possible cause of death.

  1. Sincere condolence says:

    to the family of the deceased on their tragic loss. This has to be a most difficult time for them.

    I cannot imagine what they are going thru now and the distress they are probably experiencing after having lost a family member during what should have been a happy and uneventful family cruise.

    I trust that the family is given all the support they can get giving they are far away from home.

    May she rest peacefully.

    A lot of tourist comes to the Caribbean and swim in salt water for the first time of their life, places like Idaho, las Vegas is just lakes they swimming in, and the buoyancy is different than salt water, I think every airport should have warning signs about water buoyancy in salt and fresh water flotation since they are crazed to see white sand in comparison to mudded lakes and are over their head to just jump in to swim in our beautiful beaches, some with over intake of fluids or alcohol. Yes it’s been happening across the Caribbean where they go crazy for our blue water and white sands.

    • Huh? says:

      buoyancy is better in saltwater. The major difference between the two might be riptides. Nonetheless condolences to the family

    • Blue as water says:

      Blue water and white sands are in many many places not just caribbean.. salt water floats you better than fresh water … the daily grind workload, peoples poor health and high stress, and lack of experience doing anything other than walking driving and typing , are what lead to these deaths.. at least she passed on , while finally living !
