Unknown ‘health emergency’ blamed for three American deaths at Bahamas Sandals resort

Three Americans mysteriously died of convulsions at the luxury all-inclusive Sandals Emerald Bay Resort in the Bahamas on Friday and a fourth has been hospitalized after an unknown “health emergency” suddenly occurred.

Bahamas Acting Prime Minister Chester Cooper stated that two men and one woman were found deceased in their lodgings at the resort. Another woman was airlifted to Princess Margaret Hospital, according to People. It is unclear how the three individuals died or what the fourth victim is suffering from.

“On their arrival at the scene, they were directed to the first villa. On entering a bedroom, they found a caucasian male laying on the ground unresponsive,” the Royal Bahama Police Force said in a statement that was posted on Twitter.

“An examination of the body was conducted, there was no signs of trauma found. The local doctor later pronounced the victim dead,” the statement continued.

Officers proceeded to go to a second villa where they found a man unresponsive and “slumped on the wall in the bathroom.” The woman with him was found unresponsive in a bedroom on a bed. Both appeared to have suffered convulsions before dying.

“The officers examined the bodies and found no signs of trauma. The local doctor later pronounced both persons dead,” the Bahamas police reported.

The couple found dead in the second villa had reportedly felt ill the night before and had sought medical treatment, according to the police statement. After being treated, they returned to their lodgings at the resort in Exuma.

Autopsies are being conducted to determine the cause of death. Police are asserting that the “matter remains under active investigation.”

It is unknown where the fourth woman was found, but her condition in the hospital is reportedly stable at this time. She was airlifted to the hospital after complaining of feeling ill. It is also unknown if all four people were traveling together.

The acting prime minister says he was told that “foul play is not suspected.” He has instructed the Minister of Health and Wellness, Dr. Michael Darville, to take a team of medical and environmental experts to the resort to get briefed on the tragedy, according to Caribbean Loop News.

“It is with deep sadness that we can confirm the passing of three guests at Sandals Emerald Bay on May 6, 2022,” a representative for Sandals told People.

“A health emergency was initially reported and following our protocols we immediately alerted emergency medical professionals and relevant local authorities,” the statement added.

“Nothing is more important to Sandals Resorts than the safety of our guests,” Sandals’ statement read. “We are actively working to support both the investigation as well as the guests’ families in every way possible during this difficult time. Out of respect for the privacy of our guests, we cannot disclose further information at this time.”

American travelers visiting the Bahamas are being urged to be vigilant in case the deaths were the result of food poisoning or a fast-moving infection.

Sandals is based out of Jamaica and operates several resorts in Jamaica, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean.
