An afternoon swim ended in tragedy when a 26-year-old construction worker drowned off Gasparee island on Sunday afternoon.
Police said Darius Arneaud was working on a property off Bora View, then went for a swim at around 2.50 pm, but did not resurface.
Workers called the Coast Guard, who found his body at around 3.50 pm.
Investigators suspect Arneaud suffered a seizure while swimming, as he had had a seizure earlier that morning.
His body is expected to be swabbed for a covid19 test and an autopsy done on Wednesday.
Carenage police are continuing enquiries.
