    I love American NEWS nothing hidden, when a report is given who what where when why and how is answered.

    • You’re are 100 percent right. I totally agree, everything on this little island is covered up, way too much corruption for such a small state. They need to do way better, this is unacceptable.

      • Nothing was covered up Miss Nosey. Did you ever ask that maybe out of respect for the family that the details weren’t posted?

  3. IF he was at the Pool Bar at 6pm.How did his drowning come into play? The story is very confusing. Did he venture into the Pool and ran into difficulties while in there?

  4. People,

    Please do not post disrespectful comments. This man was my friend for 46 years and he was the FINEST human being you could have ever known. It is a tragic accident and we back in the states are grieving like we have never before… so please… show some respect.

  5. I was there when this happened, lifeguards walked away, didn’t have a clue, no de fib by the pool, five guests from a wedding party did CPR for 30 mins before the ambulance arrived, poor guy and his wife, shame on you Sandals!
