Two Canadian Tourists Drown in the Dominican Republic

Two Canadian tourists, 63 and 64, respectively, drowned in the Dominican Republic on November 15, in the tourist district of the town of Sosua, east of the northern province of Puerto Plata. The victims were identified as Nicholas Carlucci, 63, and Joseph Valentino, 64, who were temporary residents at the hotel Magnificent Cabarete.

COMMENT: According to police, the two men apparently drowned while swimming under circumstances that are still under investigation. Autopsies of both men have been conducted. It is possible that the two Canadians encountered dangerous rip currents, which do exist in the DR.
