Chris Coucheron-Aamot Biography
Who is Chris Coucheron-Aamot ?
A GUEST at the luxurious Bahamas resort where three Americans mysteriously died claimed they were exposed to toxic substances from a faulty air conditioning unit.
Chris Coucheron-Aamot, who is currently vacationing at the same Sandals hotel, said three of his neighbors had died and a fourth had been airlifted to hospital in critical condition.
Three tourists died and a fourth was airlifted from the luxurious Sandals vacation resort in the Bahamas.
Chris Coucheron-Aamot claimed that the guests could have died due to a toxic gas leak from a faulty air conditioning unit.
“There was crime scene tape and security guards around our unit,” the tourist from New Mexico wrote in a Facebook post.
Coucheron-Aamot suggested there may be problems with some of the villas’ air conditioning systems that led to the deaths.
“Looks like it may have been a unit air conditioning failure, causing a toxic refrigerant leak,” he wrote in a post that appeared to be written by his partner.
“It was hard to sleep last night, every time the air conditioner came on it woke me up.
Mystery as three were found dead at a resort after a couple complained they ‘felt sick’
“We continue with our holidays because that is what I would like people to do if I were one of those who die: celebrate my life by living yours to the fullest.
“That said, our hearts go out to those who suffer. May God have mercy on them and on us.”
Most air conditioning units use a chemical called freon as a refrigerant, an odorless, tasteless, toxic gas that, if inhaled over a long period of time, can be fatal.
It is unclear whether freon was used in the air conditioning system at the Sandals Emerald Bay resort in the Bahamas.
Sandals has not responded to requests for comment about the air conditioning unit.
The shocking claim comes as one of the victims was named on Sunday.
The Alabama man, Vincent Chiarella, was found dead in his hotel room hours after he reportedly felt ill.
He was one of three Americans who died at the Sandals Emerald Bay resort in the Bahamas over the weekend.
Vincent’s wife, Donnis, who is in her 60s, was rushed to hospital and she is said to be in critical condition.
The couple had been celebrating their anniversary at the luxurious resort, Vincent’s son Austin told ABC News, adding that he had spoken to his mother on Saturday.
He told the outlet that she had woken up to find that she “couldn’t move” and that Vincent “was lying on the floor.”
“His legs and arms were swollen and he couldn’t move and he screamed for someone to come through the door,” Austin said.
Donnis is reportedly now at the Kendall Regional facility in Florida.
Vincent was pronounced dead at the scene by a local doctor.
In the second villa, an unidentified man was found “slumped against a bathroom wall” while a woman was in bed.
Both showed signs of vomiting, the Royal Bahamas Police said in a statement.
None showed signs of trauma.
An initial investigation by police found that the couple had “complained of illness the night before” and visited a local medical facility for treatment before returning to the resort.
Hotel staff found Vincent’s body shortly after 9 a.m. Friday, police said in their statement.
The three Americans died at the Exuma resort on May 6. The cause of death has not yet been revealed and autopsy results are pending.
In a statement to DailyMail.com, a Sandals spokesperson said the resort was cooperating with police.
They did not respond to inquiries about a faulty air conditioning unit.
“Nothing is more important to Sandals Resorts than the safety of our guests,” the representative wrote in an emailed statement.
“A health emergency was initially reported and, following our protocols, we immediately alerted emergency medical professionals and relevant local authorities.
“We are actively working to support both the investigation and the families of the guests in every way possible during this difficult time.
“Out of respect for the privacy of our guests, we cannot disclose any further information at this time.”
