CHRISTIANSTED — A St. Croix resident apparently drowned in a hotel pool on Protestant Cay late Saturday afternoon.

Carlos Wesley, 71, was pulled from the pool “unresponsive” at Hotel on the Cay about 5:01 p.m. on Saturday, police said.

Police described Wesley as “an elderly male” and said he could not be revived despite Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) being administered on the scene.

EMTs and medical attendants were dispatched to the scene, but they were only able to officially pronounce Wesley dead.

Wesley, a guest at Hotel on the Cay, was positively identified by his wife at the scene.

The Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) said that cause of death would be determined by an autopsy.

The VIPD continues to investigate this incident.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
