Global Affairs Canada said two Canadians died in Antigua. The ministry did not provide further information on the deaths on the Caribbean island north of Guadeloupe, citing privacy considerations.

He says consular officials are providing assistance and are in contact with local authorities for more information.

Local media reports that a Canadian woman and her child died in rough waters last week.

The Canadian Press has not been able to independently verify this information.

The Antigua and Barbuda Defense Force said in a press release that a 911 call was received at approximately 6:45 a.m. on November 30, regarding a woman and x27;a child entering the water at a rock formation known locally as Devil's Bridge.

The statement said force members had to navigate rough waters before locating the bodies of the two people, as well as that of a visibly distraught man who survived.

Last April, another Canadian was reported to have died in the same region. Authorities said in a news release they found a Caucasian man in his 60s after a 911 caller said a tourist fell from Devil's Bridge on April 8.

At the time, Global Affairs Canada confirmed the death of a Canadian, but did not not provided details, due to confidentiality.
