Around 1:20pm on Monday, July 28th police officers including Marine Unit officers were dispatched to a reported male swimmer in distress in the waters of Bailey’s Bay, Hamilton parish.
On arrival it appears that the 31 year old Hamilton parish man involved was located along the shoreline of an islet conscious and breathing.
As well as marine police, a 24 year old Hamilton parish man swam to the area to assist and a local boat was also on scene.
Both Hamilton parish men were taken aboard the marine police vessel and transported back to shore.
The 31 year old swimmer was then conveyed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital via ambulance for medical assessment and later discharged.
Apparently the 24 year old ‘Good Samaritan’ never got into difficulty and did not require any medical assistance.
The Bermuda Police Service would like to thank those members of the public that were quick to respond to this marine incident.
