An American tourist was discovered dead at the same Sandals resort where three Americans died earlier this year, according to a report.

A preliminary investigation says the man, who appears to be in his 70s, was experiencing COVID-related issues prior to his death, a spokesperson for the Royal Bahamas Police Force told NBC News.

An official cause for the sudden death has not been determined, but foul play is not suspected.

“The body of the deceased is expected to be flown to New Providence where an autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death,” police said in a statement.

The tourist stayed at the Sandals Emerald Bay Resort in Great Exuma, police said, according to NBC News.

Last May, three Americans died from carbon monoxide poisoning at that resort, police said in June.

Tennessee couple Michael Phillips, 68, and Robbie Phillips, 65, and Florida resident Vincent Chiarella, 64, died as a “result of asphyxiation due to carbon monoxide poisoning.” 

A Sandals Resort spokesperson said previously in response to the three deaths that “carbon monoxide detectors have since been installed in all guest rooms at Sandals Emerald Bay, and will be installed in all guest rooms elsewhere.”
