One dead, the other safe

Social Share

One of two Barbadian fishermen reported missing two weeks ago is dead in Antigua. Dead is Victor Bowen of Crab Hill, St Lucy.
Bowen, believed to be in his 50s, and Dail O’Neale Moore, 28, of Harper’s Land, Clapham, St Michael, were rescued Tuesday night, several miles off Barbuda after 13 days adrift.
They were picked up by an Antiguan-registered cargo vessel en route to the United States from Brazil. Both were taken on board, given food and a place to rest and told they would be dropped off at the closest port, Barbuda.
However, when crew members went to check on them yesterday morning, they discovered the older man was not responsive.
Police in Antigua were contacted and when a medical team met the cargo vessel at the Deep Water Harbour, Bowen was pronounced dead.
The cause of death is yet to be determined but investigators have already ruled out foul play. (TS/Daily Observer)
