Drowning Alert Issued As Saint Lucians Head For The Beaches


The Saint Lucia Lifesaving Association has issued a drowning alert as Saint Lucians prepare to head to the beaches for their traditional Easter Monday frolic.

“We want to remind Saint Lucians that drowning can be avoided,” Association President Ezra Small told St Lucia Times.

Small explained that people drown when safety protocols are not followed.

He told St Lucia Times it was important for people to recognise their limitations when in the water.

In addition, he noted that many beachgoers use alcohol which could impair their judgement.

“You could end up thinking that you could make the distance and that may not be possible,” Small warned.

“Be very careful. Be very vigilant. Enjoy yourself with your family in an area of the sea where you could manage,” he advised.

  1. Y’all teach Spanish and French that has been useless for 99.99% of students. Why isn’t swimming taught in every school as part of physical education? Replace those totally useless subjects with something useful.
