A St. Mary’s College (SMC) student stabbed on Micoud Street, Castries, Friday afternoon ‘did not sustain life-threatening injuries’, according to an individual familiar with the incident.

Emergency responders from the Saint Lucia Fire Service Headquarters in Castries rushed the 15-year-old to the OKEU Hospital in stable condition after receiving a call for assistance after 3:00 p.m.

The teenager sustained two penetrating wounds to the left arm and one to the waist.

According to reports, another student allegedly stabbed him due to a months-long dispute.

  1. What kind of school intervention programs are you going to put, create and bring Government on the radio on the city ugly walls what new murals in Castries ect smh this is really unbelievable everyday now It seems kids are stabbing each other….. who’s checking backpacks and these kids when they enter the schools?……….smh at this woiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Stop It!!!. Behave yourself’s Children and Adults woiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Parents……..represent better for your offspring …..these are the only future representatives and future leaders of this special and uniquely island nation!….

  2. SMC is supposed to produce the best disciplined boys in this place. Why is the thug life so attractive to our kids? Whatever happened to hard work, manners and respect?

  3. Could this be a case where even the youth cannot trust and rely on law enforcement and the legal system….so they take matters into their own hands. The signs of a failed state are all over. There must be alot more to this incident than a 100 word article.

  4. Your headline sucks. Was it written so because of the high number of killings in St Lucia? What I would have said is ” The Stubent is in Stable Condition”

  5. I think that parents needs to spend more time with their children, and stop giving them gadgets at the early âgé,pray with them talk to them about God, tell them that Jesus loves them, tell them about the dangers witch are out there, tell them that you love them. Our children will have a better future,inspite of living in a pervers world, prepare them for the coming of
    The Lord.if you loves your children please take these advice. God bless
    We parents

  6. Sunday Worship
    The fear of the LORD is the begining of knowledge, but we despise wisdom and discipline and none of these we would want, but rather rush our feet and delight in wait for someone’s blood…
    But little do we know,we lie in wait for our own blood and way-lay only on ourselves…
    Such are all those who shed blood,and such is the end of rebellious children (rebellion 😭😭💜 💜 mourn…

    Praise him,all you shinning stars
    Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies.
    Let us praise the name of the LORD, for he commanded and they were created 🌈
    He set them in place for ever and ever ;he gave a decree that will never pass away ‼️

  7. It is obvious that St Lucia is doomed: children having children (poor parenting), children stabbing each other (anger management out the door) children involved in drugs and crime (low self esteem, no mentorship), fighting in public (no mentorship), semi literate (peer pressure, a failed education system). Ask the average teen on the street to read a sentence – to understand and interpret what they have read – they MIGHT be able to read, but do they understand what they have read? NO!!! Even in the comments of this news online … the amount of bad spelling and grammar which abound in the comments – says a lot about today’s average St Lucian. We are a doomed nation!!

  8. I would not be so quick to give the article such a title — ‘Student Stabbed In Castries ‘Did Not Sustain Life-Threatening Injuries’
    Don’t get me wrong – I am grateful that the student will be ok. However, to state that the stab wound was not life threatening is not responsible based on who reads the article. The aggressor should be made to understand that you could have taken someone’s life as a result of your assault.

    Please note that any penetrating wound if not appropriately assessed and addressed can result in severe lost of blood which could then be fatal – just saying.
