Tragedy strikes during dream vacation: American retiree loses life in Belize snorkeling incident

Posted: Tuesday, April 16, 2024. 7:26 am CST.

By Horace Palacio: A snorkeling expedition in the idyllic Glover Reef Atoll took a devastating turn on Monday, April 15th, when 74-year-old American retiree Kent Hills Foster tragically lost his life in an apparent drowning incident.

Mr. Foster and his wife, Pamela Gay Fairley, were fulfilling a lifelong dream by vacationing in Belize. Their adventure began on April 10th, and they eagerly chartered a catamaran to discover the country’s famed underwater wonders. However, their snorkeling trip near South West Caye was marred by sudden crisis when Mr. Foster encountered difficulties with his equipment.

Despite his wife’s desperate attempts to save him and the catamaran captain’s swift administration of CPR, Mr. Foster could not be revived. Heartbreakingly, a pre-existing medical condition may have tragically cut his life short.

An investigating officer is leading the inquiry into the incident. Currently, no foul play is suspected, and a postmortem examination will determine the official cause of death.
