73-year-old takes last dip, body found floating at sea

The body of a 73-year-old gravedigger was found floating in the waters off Embacadere, San Fernando, over the weekend.

The deceased has been identified as Neville Boland, a resident of the Embacadere community.

The elderly man's body was spotted by a villager around 4 pm on Sunday at Black Sand Beach.

Police say there were no marks of violence and foul play was not suspected. However, an autopsy was carded for Tuesday at the San Fernando Mortuary.

The officers were informed that Boland routinely bathed at sea on Sunday afternoons after attending church, staying in shallow waters.
