Bahamas boat accident reportedly killed one woman from the U.S. Meanwhile, the Bahamas boat accident is still being investigated since it occurred, according to the Associated Press.

Though boat accidents are not uncommon in vacation favorites like the Bahamas, one accident that occurred over Memorial Day weekend have left one woman dead.

The Bahamas boat accident happened in Nassau, Bahamas. As of the moment, authorities in the island country are still investigating the accident after it resulted in the death of a U.S. citizen, said officials on Tuesday.

According to the Miami Herald, the woman was killed in the Bahamas boat accident when the boat reportedly struck a reef commonly known as the Turtle Rock located off South Bimini. The accident happened on Sunday night, says the Royal Bahamas Police Force.

The news agency reports that the woman who died in the Bahamas boat accident is 25-year-old Paloma de Mazieres from Key Biscayne in Florida. She was apparently ejected from the vessel as the boat struck Turtle Rock on off the South Bimini island on Sunday afternoon. She was pronounced dead after she was taken to Alice Town Clinic in Bimini. Officials haven't released the cause of death of Mazieres.

Inspector Jeff Adderley said that the circumstances of the Bahamas boat accident are under investigation while an autopsy was planned for later this week. There have been no reported arrests made at this time though the case is still under investigation.

According to NewsMax, the victim's boyfriend named Robert Rico recently posted a photo of the two of them to his Instagram account. Meanwhile, several messages from their family, friends and followers offered their condolences after the photo.

Web Pro News reports that another boating accident during Memorial Day have left a woman dead and two men critically injured after their vessel hit another in nearby Elliot Key.

In 2012, a massive boat accident has reportedly left 30 people dead when a boat carrying a group of people from Haiti took on water and capsized. According to officials, they believe that the boat was overloaded and couldn't sustain the weight of all the passengers.

Bahamas boat accident this week occurred off Bimini, a small cluster of islands about 50 miles east of Florida.
