A family member Tuesday morning reported finding the body of a Babonneau man who was swept away the previous day by floodwater of the Boguis River.
Family members identified the deceased as Gilbert Anthony, also known as ‘Fire’.
He was a resident of Bogius, Baboneau.
A relative said that Anthony, a strong swimmer, was heading home from work at the time when tragedy struck.
His sister, Mary, told St Lucia Times that the Babonneau Fire service spearheaded a search on Monday.
But she said they did not find Anthony, a father of six.
Mary disclosed that another family member went looking Tuesday morning and found the body.
