'Swimmer' Might Have Been Plastic Garbage - Bernews

Following a search for what was reported to be swimmer in difficulty at Horseshoe Bay “plastic garbage was recovered which may have been the cause of the false alert.”

A Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre spokesperson said, “Bermuda Radio received a telephone call from a concerned member of the public who was overlooking Horseshoe Bay from the lay-by above. The reporting source believed they could see an object just below the water which may be a swimmer in difficulty.

“The lifeguards at Horseshoe Bay were contacted and commenced a search of the specified area, plastic garbage was recovered which may have been the cause of the false alert.”
