maracas at night

Maracas Bay, Trinidad

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.
