(SNO) – Quick action by a dive instructor and crew members on a private boat ride/party aboard The Pearl on Friday, July 13, saved a male and female from drowning.
Video clips of the rescue (see videos below story) have gone viral.
In one of the videos, three males try to keep the couple afloat.
“Look a head going under, Aa. Look a head going under, Jesus Christ,” a female says in one of the videos.
A source from the boat told our newsroom that the incident occurred around 4 p.m. off Roseau beach. The boat was heading back to Rodney Bay from Canaries.
The female was reportedly “grinding” on the male, who was leaning against the railing of the boat, when they both fell over board.
The source dismissed reports that the railing broke, causing the two people to fall.
The source also noted that while the duo had a few drinks they were not intoxicated.
The source said the couple did not require any immediate medical attention and they arrived on the main island “alright”.
