  2. Correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t there signs on both side of the harbor (water front and hospital road) saying NO SWIMMING DUE TO POLLUTION or was that years ago?

  3. I totally agree with your assessment in regards to giving officers better tools for search and rescue or recovery efforts. However, with the conditions in the Castries Habour its quite possible that visibility would have hampered the recovery effort mostly due to the fact that a body will move due to under water currents compared to a motor vehicle which may remain stationary for a longer period because of weight difference.

  4. Poor visibility. I guess it’s not drugs. Give the police the proper tools.what happen if it was a motor vehicles with passengers. Would that be the same answer. Poor visibility. Poor excuse.
