He was immediately rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Belize City by the Coast Guard ambulance.

 It is suspected that he suffered a heart attack.

 The Coast Guard medic performed CPR on  Teck throughout, however, they were unable to resuscitate him and he was pronounced dead on arrival.

“This is a very unfortunate situation, and as with any major incident, the Coast Guard is conducting an internal investigation to exam systems and procedures to determine whether there were any breeches or shortcoming,” a statement from the Coast Guard expressed. 

 The Belize Police Department has been notified of the incident.

  The family has also been notified of this very unfortunate incident.
