US Retiree Drowns Near Rainbow Beach

As we reported in Tuesday’s newscast, the body of fifty-one year old Andy Grant of San Andres Village was found floating in the sea in Corozal Town in the morning. In the afternoon at about four o’clock, there was another victim at sea.  He has now been identified as fifty-six year old US retiree Jimmy Robert Anthony drowned after he reportedly went swimming in an area known as Rainbow Beach. Anthony was accompanied by his wife, Denise, who reported to police that soon after plunging into the water, her husband appeared to be motionless. Even as she tired, she could not reach him because he drifted away.  Several persons came to the rescue and pulled out Anthony from the water. A post mortem is to be performed on the body to certify the cause of death.
