The Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS), has reported a total of seventy-two ambulance calls between Friday January 8, and Monday January 11, 2016.

A Fire Service spokesman told the Times that the most serious incidents were as follows:

On Saturday, January 9, at 5:14 AM, an ambulance from the Gros Islet Fire Station responded to reports that a man was pepper sprayed in the face.

According to information, the incident involving the 41 year old male occurred outside Baywalk Mall.

The Times was told that the man was treated on the scene but declined to be transported to hospital.

At about 7:04 PM on the same day, a motor vehicle accident at Dennery resulted in a 44 year old male being transported to hospital via ambulance.

The man, a pedestrian, had been struck by a Suzuki jeep.

On Sunday, January 10, 2016, at about 1:25 AM, Fire Service officials responded to reports of a chopping incident at Ravine Poisson.

An eighteen year old male who sustained lacerations to the head during an assault, was transported by ambulance to Victoria Hospital.

At about 3:40 AM the same day, an ambulance transported a 39 year old male to hospital.

It is reported that the man sustained a gunshot wound after the Police opened fire on two men who were seen breaking into the Morne Bakery.

Hours later at 8:PM, there were reports of a motor vehicle accident at Babonneau.

The SLFS says a vehicle with a twenty-five year old man inside, rolled over.

However the young man managed to jump out, sustaining multiple injuries in the process.

He was transported to hospital via ambulance.
