Concerning the press release that was issued by the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) on Thursday 04th January 2024 captioned “Tragic Plane Crash in Bequia.”
The RSVGPF acknowledges that there was an error in the release where it stated that the four bodies were recovered from the aircraft/sea by Coast Guard personnel. The RSVGPF wishes to give full credit to the valiant efforts of the Fishermen and Divers from the Bequia community who collaborated with the SVG Coast Guard in the retrieval operation. The bodies were recovered from the wreckage by the divers and handed over to Coast Guard personnel at the scene.
The RSVGPF and the SVG Coast Guard Service value the partnership and collaboration of members of the public in the execution of their duties. The selfless and brave act of the fishermen and divers is very much appreciated and supported 100 percent by the authorities.
