I have been regretfully informed today of the death of three American visitors, two men and a woman, at a resort property on Exuma.
Another American woman has been airlifted to Princess Margaret Hospital.
I have been briefed by the commissioner of police and the resort’s executive management on the matter.
I am currently in Eleuthera on ministerial business.
As I am acting in the capacity of prime minister, I have briefed Prime Minister Davis on the matter.
Police are investigating and the cause of death is still unknown.
However, I am advised that foul play is not suspected.
I have asked Minister of Health and Wellness Dr. Michael Darville to lead a delegation this evening to Exuma of health & wellness, environment and public works officials.
The public will be kept abreast of information as soon as it becomes available.
We offer our thoughts and prayers to the families affected.
