THE SETTLEMENT, Anegada, VI - Word reaching our news room is that the French National who died on Anegada yesterday November 29, 2015 allegedly drowned. The 56 year old male was part of a contingent of vacationers on a yacht in the Jack Bay Beach area on Anegada.

The deceased’s wife and daughter were with him at the time of the accident. The body was transported to Tortola under the watchful eyes of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force and is now at the morgue at Peebles Hospital, in Road Town, waiting on official determination of death.

Police Information Officer Diane Drayton when contacted today November 30, 2015 said that she would get back to this news site once she is debriefed on the matter. However up to post time she had not made contact with this news site.

French Tourist died on Anegada this morning!

THE SETTLEMENT, Anegada, VI - Our newsroom’s correspondent on Anegada in the Virgin Islands has reported that a French tourist died on Anegada this morning November 29, 2015.

Police on Anegada from the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of the male tourist.

Anegada is currently in the last day of the three year old Lobster Festival that began yesterday November 28, 2015 and will end today November 29, 2015.

It is unclear if his death is related to activities associated with the Anegada Lobster Festival. On Friday as part of the event there was a Lobster Crawl, a night of bar-hopping and dinning along the beach.

Our newsroom will bring more details on the death of the visitor as soon as more information becomes available.

    The French lobster bisque was a little too heavy. Should've stuck to the French onion soup...
