Default Update on P&O Passenger

The cause of death has been determined though it's still not clear whether the tour operator is at fault (the investigation is ongoing). P&O has issued the following statement:

"Courts in the British Virgin Islands have recorded death by drowning as the outcome of an inquest into the death of a male passenger whilst on a scuba diving excursion in Tortola in January.

"This incident is now the subject of an investigation in the UK coroner's court.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the man's family at this time.

"As is routine, we have suspended the tour in Tortola until the UK investigation is complete."
