Guam man dies after fall
A Guam man died Sunday after falling from a golf cart Saturday night following a concert for sailors and the Guam public at U.S. Naval Base Guam’s Polaris Point, Navy officials said Monday.
Roland Boudrau died at 11:59 a.m. Sunday at the the U.S. Naval Hospital Guam, said Lt. Arwen Consaul, Naval Base Guam spokeswoman.
Boudrau was riding on the back of a golf cart around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, after a concert, when he fell off and hit his head, Consaul said.
He was conscious when taken to the hospital but his condition deteriorated overnight, she said. The golf cart belonged to the Navy, but the driver was an employee of one of several local companies that sponsored the concert along with the base’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation, Consaul said.
The Navy is investigating the incident, she said.
“Our condolences go out to the family,” she said. “We want to find out what happened to prevent this from happening again.”
