Sandals' Boat Runs Over Guest Snorkeling at its Royal Bahaman Resort & Spa

A complaint filed in Kansas Federal Court on March 29th alleges a Sandals boat ran over its own guest while snorkeling. Janet Jilka was a guest at Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa in July 2009. The complaint reveals that while snorkeling from the private resort's beach, a boat owned and controlled by Sandals ran over Ms. Jilka and struck her with the propeller. Per the complaint, this incident caused Ms. Jilka to be permanently disfigured. This is the third incident within recent years concerning the negligent operation of a Sandals' boat and snorkelers or scuba divers staying at its resorts. In August 2007, Sandal's abandoned a British couple vacationing at the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa in the water for 5 hours during a scuba diving trip. In that incident, the Sandals dive boat took the remaining guests to other scuba diving areas and even made it all the way back to the dock before the Sandals employee learned he left 2 guests in the water. A nearly identical incident happened again at the Antigua resort when the same Sandal's dive boat left a whole party of divers in the water for 2 hours before returning. The frequency of these incidents make one wonder what, if any, screening Sandals' performs on their boat operators before putting guests lives in their hands?
