Guests at the Sandals Emerald Bay resort have begun speculating what could have caused the deaths of three people, with vacationers suggesting it could have been a “faulty air conditioner.”

Mystery surrounds the deaths of two men and a woman who were found unresponsive at the five-star hotel in the Bahamas on Friday.

One of the victims was identified as Vincent Chiarella of Birmingham, Alabama, who was celebrating his anniversary with his wife Donnis, ABC News reported.

Her son Austin Chiarella told the network his mother, who also fell ill, was flown to the Kendall Regional Facility in Florida for further medical treatment.

“She woke up and my father was there on the floor and she couldn’t move,” he said after speaking to his mother on Saturday morning.

“Her legs and arms were swollen and she couldn’t move and she was screaming for someone to come through the door.”

He added: “I’m so heartbroken right now. My father was everything to me.”

The names of the remaining victims have not yet been released and the police investigation is ongoing.

Meanwhile, a guest at the Sandals hotel shared on Facebook his shocking testimony of what happened, including his theory that it could have been a problem with the air conditioning The Daily Mail reports.

“Three of our neighbors in the building next door to us died and a fourth was airlifted in critical condition early this morning,” reads a post from Chris Coucheron-Aamot, who is currently vacationing at the Sandals resort.

“It sounds like it could have been a fault in the air conditioning in the unit that caused a toxic coolant leak.

“It was hard to sleep last night. I woke up every time the air conditioner came on.

“We’re continuing our holiday because that’s what I want people to do if I were the one who died – to celebrate my life by living yours to the fullest.

“Nevertheless, our hearts go out to those who mourn. May God have mercy on them and on us.’
