'He was complaining of chest pains, like a heart scare," a source told Virgin Islands News Online.

Efforts to reach Mr Turnbull's relatives for an update on his condition were futile.

      Interesting you said you're not judging yet judged from the moment you began your judgement.

      @truth like it or not, suppose you were not judging. Are you God? Which one of us is exempt from illness? Oh, I forgot - you are. What do you know about the man and his God? We people have to be careful with our evil thoughts and hatefulness. All you should say is "there go I but for the grace of God"

    Get well Pastor. Your voice will be missed from the radio this evening!
    Shore up on those exercise and diet moves. Shore up on lots of cayenne pepper. It is a rotor rooter when it comes to plaque in arteries and veins!

    Good luck!
