A St. Lucian man is dead and three others injured following a boating incident in St. Lucian waters around midnight Friday, according to police.
Reports are that a canoe collided with a Marine police vessel as the lawmen tried to intercept the canoe which had four persons on board – two Venezuelans and two Saint Lucians.
One of the men, believed to be a St. Lucian who was the captain of the canoe, was pronounced dead at St. Jude Hospital.
The other men sustained serious injuries but are in stable condition.
Police sources say the marine unit thought the crew on the canoe were acting suspiciously prior to the incident.
