American tourist drowns on Baby Beach
On Monday afternoon, a 43-year-old American tourist drowned on Baby
Beach. Ambulance and police rushed to resuscitate the swimmer, but to no avail.
The man had gone swimming with his children just as the sea was getting rough. He recognized the danger and took his children to a shallower area. When he subsequently warned their mother, they no longer saw their father.
Not much later, a summoned police officer saw a body floating in the sea. Together with other people he managed to get the body aside, but by then it was already too late.
Victim Support has taken care of the family. https://www.stmaarten.news
