“We understand a number of good Samaritans and off-duty medical professionals did provide initial care to the victim on the beach,” local official Thomas Bell said in a statement. “Their actions to offer comfort and first aid are honorable and appreciated.”
The coroner confirmed Perreault’s cause of death was chest trauma, per WBTW. Winds were reported to be between 10 and 15 MPH the day of her death.
Local watering hole, Scotty’s Beach Bar wrote of Perreault in a Facebook tribute: “Today with heavy hearts we mourn the loss of a dear friend and kindhearted local, Tammy Perreault. Some things we will never begin to understand but what we do know is no one has a bad thing to say about this woman. To be as sweet as her day in and day out should be a goal for all.”
“If everyone can please keep the Perreault family in your hearts today especially her husband Mike. Mike we love you and are immensely sorry for your loss.. everyone at Scotty’s, staff and Scotty’s family will continue prayers,” the bar concluded.
