Following the deaths of three American tourists at a Sandals resort in the Bahamas, the son of one of the victims is claiming his mother suffered from swollen legs and arms after falling ill during the tropical getaway.

Austin Chiarella, of Birmingham, Alabama, told ABC News that his father, Vincent Chiarella, was one of the tourists who died at Sandals Emerald Bay in Exuma on Friday, while his mother, Donnis Chiarella, has been hospitalized.

“I am just so heartbroken right now,” Austin said. “My dad was everything to me.”

Austin revealed his parents, both in their mid-60s, were in the Bahamas celebrating their anniversary when they fell ill. He told the outlet his mother began to feel sick on Thursday and visited a local clinic.

The woman reportedly thought she was fine after she was released and returned to the resort. However, Austin claimed when his mother awoke the next morning, “my dad was laying there on the floor, and she couldn’t move," he said. “Her legs and arms was swollen, and she couldn’t move, and she screamed to get someone to come in the door."

On Friday, the Royal Bahamas Police Force revealed three American tourists were discovered dead at two different villas. Members of the resort staff found a man unresponsive on the bedroom floor of his villa.

A second man and a woman were also found unresponsive in a separate villa. The woman was discovered on a bed, and the man was found on the bathroom floor. “Both individuals showed signs of convulsion,” the police said in a press release.

However, officials revealed there were “no signs of trauma found” on any of the victims. The Acting Prime Minister was advised that “foul play is not suspected” in the deaths of the American tourists.

Royal Bahamas Police Force Commissioner Paul Rolle confirmed a fourth victim was initially taken to a hospital in Nassau and was later airlifted to Kendall Regional Hospital in Miami-Dade County.

Officials have yet to release the names of the victims. A medical examiner is expected to perform autopsies on Monday to determine the cause of death.
