   February 18, 2017 ,   Accidents

A crew member aboard Costa Magica which was docked at Heritage Quay pier (Saint Johns Antigua) has been found hanging in his stateroom Wednesday afternoon, police confirmed.

The 27-year-old dishwasher who is from India, was identified as Conciecao Silva.

Well-placed sources reported that another crew member discovered the body just before 2:00 p.m. 

Local cruise officials and members of the crew were very tightlipped about the matter, but Observer media learned that the deceased was fully dressed when the discovery was made.

Sources said the crew member who shared a cabin with Silva, allegedly took down the body and attempted to revive him, to no avail.

The doctor on board was also called upon to help but could do nothing for the man who was pronounced dead on the scene.
