An American tourist has been found dead at the same Sandals resort where three Americans died earlier this year, according to a report.
A preliminary investigation indicates the man, who appears to be in his 60s, was experiencing COVID-related issues prior to his death, a spokesperson for the Royal Bahamas Police Force told NBC News.
An official cause of the sudden death has not been determined, but foul play is not suspected.
“The body of the deceased is expected to be airlifted to New Providence where an autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death,” police said in a statement.
The tourist stayed at Sandals Emerald Bay Resort in Great Exuma, police said, according to NBC News.
Last May, three Americans died of carbon monoxide poisoning at the resort, police said in June.
Tennessee couple Michael Phillips, 68, and Robbie Phillips, 65, and Florida resident Vincent Chiarella, 64, died of “asphyxiation due to carbon monoxide poisoning”.
A Sandals Resort spokesperson previously said in response to the three deaths that “carbon monoxide detectors have since been installed in all rooms at Sandals Emerald Bay, and will be installed in all rooms elsewhere.”
