We never went to Mullet yesterday as planned because the sea looked just too rough at Maho, after 2:30 it got even more rough and the undertow got worse.

Another Article

Confusing as to who is missing. Mother and child or two younger people?

Confusing story. As I posted maybe 10 days ago, someone else drowned on the French side recently. Be careful swimming, people!

Seems in the original article, adult and child were in distress, at which time a fireman attempted rescue to no avail. Second story seems to relate to the same incident, however some relatives reported to the news folks that two of their adult relatives/friends went to the beach, and had not been seen since, which the news article states might or might not be the same two victims that were in distress.

My husband was there and saw young teen boys in the ocean, and said he noticed one boy being hit by one wave after another. then he heard someone say!!! he came up once twice and now we do not see him. Husband said he was so dam upset that parents actually allow kids to go into that type of situation in the first place... finally some ran into the water, but he packed up and left, as he was totally upset, and did not stay to see the results...He felt the boy was definatly gone.... Very sad, as the water was so rough, unless your a real pro. should stay out...

We're staying just up the coast from Mullet and we can see the long,gray police/army boat conducting a search. They are concentrating on one area at the end of the bay. Not sure if divers are involved at this point because I can't see that far. We were at Maho yesterday and knew to stay out of the water especially in the afternoon when it really got rough. We heard the sirens go at one point and now we know why. I feel incredibly sad today...life is so precious.

This is horribly sad.....this is eye opening because my boys love to ride waves. Do they put warning flags up?

No flags nor lifeguards at any beaches that I am aware of.
