(Grand Bahama, The Bahamas) - Officers at the Central Detective Unit in Grand Bahama are continuing their investigations into an incident that resulted in the drowning death of a 61 year old US visitor from Pennsylvania who arrived on the island on Sunday morning June 17th, via cruise ship and was expected to depart the same afternoon.

Police were notified about the incident at 12:21pm on Sunday and they responded to the scene in the Deadman’s Reef area where the female visitor along with a family member and other guests were snorkeling when she experienced some breathing difficulty.

She was later transported to the Rand Memorial Hospital via ambulance where she was pronounced dead by the doctor on duty.
