Wemsyss Bight Eleuthera man drowns after diving session – This is the second man to drown in weeks..


Vernon Culmer 33-year-old of Wemsyss Bight drowned Wednesday.

Tarpun Bay, Eleuthera Bahamas Press agents are in South Eleuthera at this hour trying to solve a mystery in the death of a man who drowned on land. Our team was told that Vernon Culmer of Wemsyss Bight was diving near a popular tourist cay off the southern tip of Eleuthera when he came back up to the surface after having trouble.

Reports say the man was unconscious by the time he arrived at the Rock Sound clinic. Culmer is the son of a popular businesswoman whose store draws people from all over the island. It appears that the man drowned while on land, a result of something going wrong in the water.

Our agents probed deeper into the matter and we learned that the man’s diving partners also have had issues. We understand a Dukey Hunt from Tarpum Bay had a similar incident recently but was able to survive. Their other diving partner we understand was buried just two weeks ago after experiencing similar problems while diving.

Bahamas Press agents are now trying to locate the diving equipment to see if they played a role in the death and near-death of these young island men, as we know the budgets are stretched with authorities and no one have time to inquire deep into why Bahamians are showing up dead all over the place. We extend our condolences to the families.

Meanwhile, we are wondering why the hell the rest of these media outlets, who keep dissing us, een reporting this?

Maybe that’s why so many editors and reporters are resigning. Well, if they looking to join our team, we will gladly put their resume at the top of the pile in our next executive meeting.

We report, yinna decide, and yinna wutless media, try catch up.
