The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force (RSCNPF) is investigating the circumstances that led to an overseas visitor’s untimely demise at a local hotel. The unfortunate incident occurred around 8PM on May 9th, 2023.
Emergency services (EMS) received a call for assistance for Gary Welsh, an elderly Caucasian man who had fallen to the hotel’s ground floor. Mr. Welsh, who arrived earlier that day on vacation with his family, fell down the stairs as he was ascending from the first floor. He did not fall from the fifth floor as was previously stated.
