Two Drownings Reported on Great Stirrup Cay in Just a Week’s Time

There has been a surprising rash of drownings on Norwegian Cruise Line owned Great Stirrup Cay recently, and its time the authorities take notice.

The most recent report of drowning was reported on July 6th by the Bahamas Press. The website says that the drowning had occurred on July 3rd and involved an adult male. The victim was found floating unresponsive in the water at approximately 1:00 pm. After pulling him from the water, authorities performed CPR on him and then transported him to a local medical facility where he was pronounced dead.

The website also reports that week earlier, on June 28th, an Asian woman was found floating in the sea in the same area.  

A commenter to the story recounted that she was on the beach with the Asian woman before her drowning. She states that a fellow passenger performed CPR on the victim and seemed to know more about the life-saving techniques than the Norwegian staff. The commenter, identified as Renee, also stated that she wrote a letter to Norwegian Guest Relations and only received a “dumb” excuse in response.
