Man drowns at popular pool in Blanchissuese River

A 23-year-old San Fernando has drowned during a hike at '3 Pools' in Blanchisseuse.

The victim has been identified as Akil Stafford.

The drowning occurred around 10.30 am Tuesday.

Stafford is the 4th person to have drowned at '3 Pools' this year.

All victims were part of private hiking groups.

Local Government councilor of the area, Candice Allain says that over the years, villagers would offer a tour guide service for a fee but lately the private groups stopped using their service.

The councilor is urging persons going on that trail to get in contact with the villagers since they know the area.
