Tragedy at Devil’s Bridge: Canadian Mother and Son Perish

Devil’s Bridge

In St. Johns, a tragic incident has occurred at the Devil’s Bridge, leading to the deaths of a Canadian tourist and her young son. The 38-year-old woman and her five-year-old son drowned after a wave swept them away while viewing the sunset.

The husband and father, deeply affected by the loss, sought to return to Canada but was held due to ongoing investigations. The Antiguan government, including Prime Minister Gaston Browne, extended condolences, acknowledging the profound impact of the tragedy.

This event marks the second tourist death at Devil’s Bridge this year, a location steeped in history and sorrow. Originally resembling a bridge, the site is a poignant reminder of the island’s enslaved people who believed crossing it would lead them to freedom in the afterlife. The recent incident at Devil’s Bridge not only reiterates the importance of safety in tourism but also invites reflection on the historical and cultural significance of such sites and the narratives they carry, impacting how we engage with and respect them.
