The death toll in the May 21 Mahdia Secondary School dormitory fire in Guyana rose to 20 on Tuesday after another student succumbed.

Local reports identified the deceased as fourteen-year-old Sherana Daniels.

The state-owned Guyana Chronicle said she died Tuesday morning while receiving treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

According to the publication, the Daniels succumbed to the effects of carbon monoxide inhalation, despite valiant efforts to save her.

Before the teenager’s death, Guyana police charged a 15-year-old girl with nineteen counts of murder concerning the Mahdia Secondary School dormitory fire.

The accused appeared via Zoom before Magistrate Sunil Scare and was not required to plead to the capital charges.

She will be at a Sophia juvenile facility, and the court adjourned the matter until July 4, 2023.

The girl is alleged to have set the fire after school officials confiscated her mobile telephone.

  1. That poor child has one more soul to answer to.
    i could only imagine what her parents are going through!!
    What a trauma for everybody: the teen, her parents, grieving families, Guyana ….
    That child needs more than prayers! Her life is probably ended, before it even began.

  2. How can one explain the deep hurt this poor child is going through? to go to bed each night, to sleep if you can and to awake with the faces of the deceased in you mind – horror – horror – will someone hold me? some one I can trust?
    (I don’t know of her religion but) My Lord God is a KIND & LOVING GOD who hears all prayers. His Son was sent to teach us, as was written; “Though your sins be as Scarlet, they shall be as white as Snow; though they be red as crimson, they shall be as Wool.” Isaiah 1:18
    Let some one, or persons go pray with her on a daily basis, to heal that hurt in her Soul, to repent and be saved by the Lord.
