CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A St. Thomas man was found unresponsive, face down in a swimming pool near Hull Bay, dead of an apparent drowning on Tuesday.
A neighbor of the dead man identified the victim as longtime St. Thomas resident Glenn Higgins.
The public became aware of the disturbance when two police cars and two ambulances raced towards Hull Bay Tuesday afternoon. They came back up the road later, without sirens.
Police reports said EMTs arrived on the scene after 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
The pool was reportedly at a shared property at Tropaco Point, the point of land separating Magens Bay from Hull Bay.
Higgins was the owner of Yak Shack Boat rentals the kayak and paddle board concession at Magens Bay.
He was known to be a strong swimmer, having been in the water sports industry since the early 1980’s.
