Yesterday we told you about the lifeless body of a man, later identified as 41 year old Andy Grant, that washed up on the Corozal beach on Tuesday morning around 9:30 am. Grant, a resident of San Andres village, Corozal is believed to have been an avid swimmer so police are still trying to piece together the events leading up to his death. A postmortem on his body was being conducted today. About 5 pm on the same day another dead body was found floating on the sea not far from where the first one was discovered. This time it’s an American National identified as 56 year old Jimmy Anthony. Officer Commanding Corozal Police Formation Superintendent Dennis Arnold tells us more.
(Via Phone) “Initial police investigations reveled that Anthony and his wife went swimming in the Rainbow area of Corozal Town. While in the water, Anthony was floating on his back. His wife noticed that Anthony was floating away from her going out to sea. She started to shout for him, but apparently he was not responding . She asked for some assistance from some young men who were in the area. They assisted her and brought Anthony to shore. CPR was conducted on him immediately but to no avail. He was taken to the Corozal Community Hospital.”
Authorities believe that 56 year old Jimmy Anthony was “ailing from some type of sickness.” Police investigations continue.
