One Happy Island Re: Has something happened??

I was out night snorkling and I heard all the sirens too but never heard anything. I did see a 4 foot sand shark last night snorkling. Thats the first shark I have ever seen in Aruba.

Could have been a couple of things. There was an alert for police, ambulance and the fire department due to a plane arriving from Ecuador that was experiencing some problems. Fortunately the plane landed safely.

Aside from this unfortunately there were several traffic accidents over the weekend that could have caused more police and ambulance activity.
