    I truly hope that whatever the causes are that he would receive the proper medical help he need and fully recover his health at the hospital.
    Thank to those that helped him out of the water. We need each other help, daily.

    I hope he’s ok, was there a lifeguard on duty (I expect not?)
    There is a swell at the moment and people underestimate the power of the water.
    It’s so dangerous, imagine if it were a child.

    taking old cruise ship tourists to any place in the BVI that is over 5 miles from Peebles hospital in Road Town. Alternatively have BVI lifeguards and medical services stationed at all cruise passenger BVI attractions when over 5 miles from this hospital.

      The beach is fine when the water is calm. In fact, rough seas anywhere are considered dangerous.

    We trust it was a clarion call designed to inform the community of the prominence, signs and inherent dangers of the man and the sea and we can now bring awareness to the life-saving resources not available at our beaches therefore the situation can inspire real policy changes!
