The Police are currently conducting investigations into a possible drowning of a US Citizen, which took place at Galley Bay on Sunday.
Ryan James Vollmer of the United States, who was a guest at the Galley Bay Hotel, apparently had just returned to the hotel from an outing around 9:30 pm, and decided to go for a swim.
A close friend of the deceased noticed he appeared to be intoxicated, and tried unsuccessfully to persuade him not to enter the water.
Despite the warnings, he entered the water and shortly afterwards disappeared. His body was later spotted floating face down in the water, and appeared to be dead.
He was pulled ashore with the assistance of staff and guests at the hotel. Dr. Beazer later arrived on the scene and pronounced him dead.
He arrived on the island on Wednesday 14th December and was due to leave on Wednesday 21st December.
Further investigations are ongoing into the matter.
