    I’m sorry for the boy if he’s the one who drowned on Friday… He and his friends were jumping from the rocks…it’s so dangerous, there should be a sign to forbid jumping.

    A life guard would have saved his life. every one was screaming for help but no one could swim. The men in the watersport area came late on the scene.

      With the amount of drownings happening in this island all of a sudden; we need to have life guards on every beach.

    It has not been confirmed officially that the body is that of the little boy. Just a word of caution to the children and their parents. The sea can be enticing and alluring but it is also a watery grave for many. Be wise!

    So many coroner’s here giving their negative inputs.The investigation is not even complete.Typical Lucians always have the anecdote but doing nothing.Anyway condolences to his family no matter how he died.
