The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

On Wed­nes­day March 23, 2016 a post mortem ex­am­i­na­tion was con­ducted on the body of 17-year-old Joshua Hinds of Morne For­tune, Castries.

The post mortem ex­am­i­na­tion in­di­cated as­phyxia sec­ondary to drown­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, on Sun­day March 20, 2016 about 4:20 p.m. Hinds was swim­ming in the sea off the coast of Ti Kaye in Anse la Raye when he sud­denly sub­merged.

His body was dis­cov­ered float­ing a few min­utes later. Ef­forts to re­sus­ci­tate him proved fu­tile.

He was trans­ported to the Vic­to­ria Hospital where he was pro­nounced dead by a med­i­cal doc­tor.

In­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing into this mat­ter.
