On Monday May 15, 2023 about 11:15 a.m. a report of a suspected drowning was conveyed to the Police Marine Unit. About 12:35 p.m. Officers of the Gros Islet Police Station were informed of the discovery.

The deceased who was later identified as forty-two (42) year old female Andrea Jules of Odsan, Castries, was part of a group of nine (9) persons on board a local vessel travelling from Martinique to Saint Lucia, which encountered engine trouble and rough seas, andΒ  overturned as a result.

Eight (8) of the nine persons were eventually rescued by the French Marine Unit and a French catamaran. Andrea Jules was suspected to have drowned.

The body of Andrea Jules was later recovered about six (6) nautical miles off Pigeon Island by a local vessel.
