U.S. Tourist Found Dead In Same Sandals Resort In The Bahamas Where 3 Died In May
A U.S. Tourist was found dead in the same Sandals resort in the Bahamas where 3 others died earlier this year in May.
The U.S. tourist died on Tuesday at Sandals Emerald Bay resort in Great Exuma, Bahamas. The hotel has confirmed that the tourist died after testing positive to COVID-19.
The hotel confirmed with Insider that “We can confirm reports coming out of the Bahamas that, sadly, a guest has passed away from apparent natural causes,”
“Bahamian authorities do not suspect any foul play,” the spokesperson continued. “We wish to extend our deepest sympathies to the guest’s family, and we remain in close contact to provide support during this difficult time.”
The man died after having a seizure while quarantining in his room. Authorities have not released details of the man’s identity because his family is yet to be notified.
3 U.S. tourists died at the resort in May
Last May, 3 U.S. citizens died at the resort following carbon monoxide poisoning.
According to police reports, the Tennessee couple Michael Phillips, 68, and Robbie Phillips, 65, and Florida resident Vincent Chiarella, 64, died as a “result of asphyxiation due to carbon monoxide poisoning.” A fourth traveler was hospitalised following the incident.
According to a hotel spokesperson, “carbon monoxide detectors have since been installed in all guest rooms at Sandals Emerald Bay, and will be installed in all guest rooms elsewhere.”
