Two teenagers, a 15-year-old female and 19-year-old male, drowned at the Argyle Waterfall in Tobago on Sunday after a sudden gush of water caught them off-guard.
Police identified the victims as Kharisha Thompson and Krislon Walters, both of Argyle.
According to reports, all emergency response teams from the Roxborough Fire Station, Tobago Emergency Medical Services and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) headed to the area around 2.45 pm.
Divisional Fire Officer David Joseph-Thompson said eight people were in the waterfall's pool when the waterfall broke its banks on the third level sweeping away the 15-year-old girl.
Director of the Tobago Emergency Management Agency, head of the Allan Stewart, head of CERT said Walters jumped in the pool attempting to rescue Thompson but he too drowned.
Stewart said although no other member of the group suffered injuries, the hospital was on stand by to provide counselling.
The Argyle falls is the highest in Tobago, is accessed via Cameron Canal Road and a 15 minutes hike through the jungle.
