A man has been confirmed dead following a boating accident on the western end of Tortola early Thursday morning, April 25.
Information Officer in the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force Diane Drayton said the casualty happened at Frenchman’s Cay Harbour in Soper’s Hole.
Police are yet to disclose the identity of the deceased.
Rescue Coordinator of the Virgin Islands Search And Rescue, Phil Aspinall, told BVI News that the incident was reported to his team but the matter was dealt with by the police.
“We got a call about 1:15 in the morning for an overturned dingy and unknown number of persons in the water. Police were on the scene immediately so we didn’t respond,” Aspinall said.
Investigations are ongoing.
