    Sad news: A Tourist passed away in the Baby Beach area

    A little while ago I saw on the local news that a tourist from a cruise ship visiting Baby Beach area sadly passed away.

    Was this today? We drove down to Baby Beach this morning, but didn't stay long. We didn't notice any emergency vehicles when we were there.

    We were on our way back by then, heading to Zeerovers. Several emergency vehicles went by on the main road, headed in that direction. That's probably where they were going.
