October 19, 2023

Police are carrying out investigations into an unnatural death which occurred around 9:00 a.m. at Guinea Plantation, St. John.

The deceased has been identified by family members as 70-year-old Carlisle Hillary Beckles of Guinea, St. John.

Police say they received a report at their Operations Control Centre from a male who stated that a worker at the Plantation fell into the pond and drowned.

Initial investigations suggest that the deceased, who is in the habit of visiting the pond to fetch water for irrigation purposes, fell into the water and went under. Two people went to his assistance but he did not resurface.

Help was sought from the Barbados Coast Guard in retrieving the body, and a medical doctor pronounced death at the scene.
