The Ministry of Health is working with the St Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority and local police and emergency services, in the management of what authorities believe to be a potentially high risk situation.

Reports confirm that Ministry of Health officials were alerted to the arrival of a cargo vessel from Guyana en route to the Vieux Fort Seaport  about 4 am on Sunday March 9th.

Information received indicated that one crew member aboard the vessel died and another was ill.

Preliminary assessment of the situation led to the admission of the sick crew member at the St Jude Hospital, an emergency post mortem examination on the body of the deceased crew member at the Victoria Hospital, and the detention of the ship and its crew members.

The cargo ship is scheduled to leave the Vieux Fort Port on Tuesday March 11th
