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.
