A pioneering medical visionary responsible for the establishment of Grenada’s lone medical diagnostic, laboratory services and imaging centre is dead.
What started out as a day of family fun ended in tragedy for the family and friends of Dr. Dominic Paul, Founder and Owner of Spice Isle Imaging Centre Inc on the Carenage, St. George’s.
According to a report from the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF), the 54-year-old Businessman lost his life after running into difficulties while bathing at Artist Bay, La Poterie, St Andrew.
The report said that the incident occurred at 3.00 p.m. on Carnival Tuesday.
Dr. Paul was in the company of his family and friends when he disappeared in the rough sea while bathing.
An immediate search was mounted and his body was retrieved from the water and several attempts were made to resuscitate him.
Dr. Paul was rushed to the Princess Alice Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
THE NEW TODAY contacted a close friend of Dr Paul but was told that she was not yet in the fame of mind to speak with the media regarding the untimely death of Dr. Paul.
The deceased is the brother of Roman Catholic priest, Fr. Gerard Paul.
Dr. Paul who studied at the New York City College of Technology and Brooklyn College, had more than 20 years experience in X-Ray, CT, MRI and Special Procedures.
The medical expert worked in various hospitals in New York including Kings Country Hospital, Kingsbrook Jewish, Maimonides, New York Eye and Ear and New York Methodist Hospital.
In July 2004, he founded Spice Isle Imaging Centre, which offers Diagnostic, Laboratory and Microbiology Services.
An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the cause of Paul’s death.
