    That’s tough. The same thing happened to my cousin. We never recovered his body. Prayers to the affected families.

    So sad and tragic. It is advisable that persons going to the beach should take along flotation devices like life belts and/or life jackets even if they can swim. Rogue waves and treacherous currents are common on the Atlantic side of Vieux Fort (if this is where the incident occurred).
