A grieving father has recalled urging his son, who died following an incident on the job at an attraction site in Babonneau, to leave the ‘risky’ occupation.
But Vincent Caroo told reporters that his twenty-eight-year-old son, Denelle Caroo, also known as ‘Prince,’ would respond that adequate safety measures were in place.
“I told him to leave the job because they always tell me his line of work is risky. He always works in the towers, all the way up. But he always telling me they have things like harness. ‘That protecting us daddy’,” Vincent said.
But the father disclosed that his son did not fall; rather, something fell on him.
The father said he was at work when he received a call regarding the incident involving his son.
He said Denelle was a Maintenance Officer at the Babonneau Sky Ride.
The father told reporters he learned an object fell on the young man’s head.
The father said he and his son were extremely close.
“That’s my most loving child. I have five of them,” Vincent revealed, adding that he would miss Denelle’s love and kindness.
He said his son was the father of two young children and wanted to be there when one entered primary school next month.
The company where the deceased worked has not issued an official statement on the incident, citing the ongoing police investigation.
