According to a diver by the name of Daniel Gayle who has been utilizing the Rio Cobre river for over a decade for fishing, there is a special season when the mermaid requires blood. In the special season the river’s colour changes to brown, and many accidents occur, he told the Jamaica Star.
In his informative talk with the news source, Gayle told them that 6 years ago, people went to the river sprinkling blood only to find that 6 people died in a Vitara vehicle afterwards in the area.
Another resident living close to the gorge said he knew someone who was a fisherman that died due to interaction with a mermaid. According to the man, the deceased who was known as Roaster one day showed him the biggest fish scale he had ever seen, then later told him he was going back to catch the creature it came from. At the time the resident said, the fisherman was smoking a lot of cigarettes due to the realness of the situation.
Roaster later reportedly went back to look for the mermaid, only to be found a few days later with a broken neck and hand. Many of the residents living close to Rio Cobre who knew the man, said the mermaid was responsible for his death.
