A couple’s vacation ended in tragedy after a tourist dove off a floating slide at the Westin St. John Resort and Villas, suffering fatal neck injuries when he struck his head on the seabed, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court.

The tourist, Roy Toupin, died on May 5, according to a federal lawsuit filed Monday by his wife, Vivienne Toupin.
