Three American vacationers were found dead At the Bahamas Sandals resort
Officials said three Americans were found dead and a fourth was hospitalized at a Sandals resort in the Bahamas on Friday.
It is still unknown how they perished. The Royal Bahamas Police Force said it was looking into a claim that a couple was sick and went to the hospital for treatment.
Sandals confirmed the deaths in a statement to USA TODAY. The deaths occurred at Sandals Emerald Bay in Great Exuma, a luxury holiday destination.
The resort personnel informed George Town Police on Friday morning that a guy had been discovered unresponsive in one of the villas. The Royal Bahamas Police Force reported that while authorities were on their way to the resort, they were informed that another man and woman had been found motionless in another villa.
According to authorities, officers discovered a male laying on the ground in the first villa. He was later pronounced dead, but there was no evidence of damage to his body.
Police discovered a male in another villa’s bathroom and a woman unresponsive on a bed. Both “showed signs of convulsion,” but no signs of trauma, according to authorities. Investigators claimed the pair had complained of feeling ill the night before and had returned to their property after being treated at a hospital.
According to Bahamas Acting Prime Minister Chester Cooper, another American woman was taken to a hospital, and authorities did not suspect foul play in the fatalities.
According to the Royal Bahamas Police Force, police were awaiting an autopsy report to identify the cause of death.
