Man dies in Soufriere after fall

A 52-year-old man died last night, Tuesday, March 12, 2013 after allegedly falling from a platform on the Sulphur Springs and into a river bed in Soufriere.

Police said Anthony Cenac, a resident of Contonment, Vieux Fort, was pronounced dead at the Soufriere hospital.

A friend of the deceased told St. Lucia News Online that Cenac was among a group of four men who went to the Sulphur Springs in Soufriere last night after work when he fell from the platform at abou 9 p.m.

The friend further alleged that their search led them to the bottom of a cliff where Cenac was found. They allegedly tried to give him CPR but he was unresponsive. He was taken to hospital where he was confirmed dead.

Police are investigating and a post mortem will reveal the cause of death.

  1. The guys went to the pool next to the car park which is not set up as the 'tourist' pool which is higher up under the bridge. They were all under the influence when Cenac left them and walked down the steps. Yes it was dark, he was supposed to take a right turn but instead he continued straight thinkin that there was a track and he fell to his death. Honestly, if there were lights and or if there was a RAILING that would have never happened.

  3. At 9:00 PM it's pretty dark in the bushes out there. Why would one want to go to the Sulphur Springs at this time of night? Beats me am I missing something?

    • Yep, you learn something new everyday. Many people enjoy the baths at the Sulpher Springs at night. All night long people visit the Springs to bathe FYI

    • Oh yes, I forgot to tell you that there are lights, proper stairs with lighting, and changing rooms there so its not just in the bushes. If the deceased chose to go to the unlighted bushes then....
