The St Lucia Air and Sea Ports authority together with local medical and emergency officials have disclosed some of the details surrounding the deaths of three crew members of the Cruise Vessel Insigna.

This is the second emergency stop made in St Lucia by a cruise vessel in one week.

Reports received on Thursday indicated that a fire which started in the engine room of the vessel is responsible for causing the deaths of the staffers.

Speaking late yesterday afternoon, during a Press Conference called by SLASPA Dr Alicia Eugene explained that one individual who is suspected to have been suffered some extent of smoke inhalation is currently being treated at hospital.

Dr Eugene notes that the patient continues to remain under observation for any possible signs of distress.

The vessel was forced to make an emergency stop in Castries for emergency assistance on Thursday.

A cruise ship on its way from Barbados to Grenada was forced to make an emergency stop at Port Castries, when an eighty-two year old passenger developed medical complications aboard the Ventura this week.
