A teenage boy is suspected to be the island’s latest drowning victim. The incident occurred on Thursday afternoon around noon near Rat Island.

According to reports a group of individuals who are believed to be from La Clery were playing a game of beach football when Darren James decided to swim to rat island. He apparently encountered difficulties while in the water.

Friends of the deceased claim that his desperate cries for help were ignored by some tourists, who were kayaking near the area at the time of the incident. They say his last words were the calls to one of his companions before he submerged.
Coast Guard personnel have reportedly been searching for the body on Thursday afternoon.
