3 Americans found dead at Sandals resort in the Bahamas, fourth hospitalized

Three Americans were found dead at a Sandals resort in the Bahamas and a fourth has been hospitalized, officials said.

Bahamas Acting Prime Minister Chester Cooper said in a statement on Twitter that police are investigating the situation, but noted that “foul play is not suspected.”

Police at the George Town station were alerted Friday just after 9 a.m. by staff at Sandals Emerald Bay in Exuma that a man was found unresponsive in his villa, the Royal Bahamas Police Force said in a statement.

The man was found on the floor of a bedroom.

A second man and a woman were found unresponsive in another villa at the resort, police said in the statement. They said the man was located in a bathroom and the woman was on a bed in the bedroom.

“Both individuals showed signs of convulsion,” the force said.

Authorities said there were “no signs of trauma found” with any of the victims. A doctor pronounced all three dead at the scene.

Police said an initial investigation found that the man and woman in the second villa had complained of an illness the night before they were found. They went to a medical facility, received treatment, and went back to their villa, police said.

A fourth person, a woman, was airlifted to a hospital in Nassau, according to Cooper.
