Pending the identification of two people who were found washed ashore at Maracas Bay this morning, a post mortem on their bodies will be done to confirm the cause of death.
The bodies of a man and a woman were discovered at the popular beach facility at around 5:30am.
The man was said to have been wearing only bathing shorts while the young woman was wearing a one piece bathing suit.
A district medical officer visited the scene and examined the bodies. It was estimated that the couple had been in the water for some six hours before washing ashore.
